Mosque

It is just a short walk to the southwestern bend of the township center and to this Mosque, with its twelve-sided 75feet high minaret. Thanks to the outstanding way in which it has been conserved, it ranks amongst the major buildings of the Turkish period. The structure is rectangular in plan with an enormous square prayer-hall triumphed by a flat roof with an octagonal drum-dome. The outer walls are perforated by slender pointed windows which provide some relief to the otherwise plain natural stone exterior. Apart from the reserved decoration and stalactite decoration the interior, too, is quite plain. The wall facing Mecca contains the mandatory mihrab, or prayer-niche.
