At one time this site was the monastery of Santa Barbara. The Turks converted it to a mosque after the Battle of Rethimnon and named it after the commander of their naval forces, Kara Musa. The mosque has still its mihrab indicating the direction of Mecca. There is also a mausoleum in front of the mosque.
There is a fine Turkish fountain outside the mosque on the front facing the street, and another inside facing the mosque.
