On the north of “mahfil”, “köşk” part appears in the middle.    Straight wooden ceiling has been reinforced by ten stakes. Stairs being in north-west corner serve as entrance to “mahfil” “Mihrap” and “Minber” have been restored. The internal side of the mosque has been restored. Mosque has 13 windows. Minaret which has been modernized stands on northeast corner. Some parts of the mosque have been made with wooden engraving.
Düzköy Village Mosque
It is located in Düzköy of Borçka. Although there is not an epigraph on it, it was built in 1850 according to the researches which was conducted later. The mosque which is in good condition today thanks to the small renovations is open for praying. There is a basement floor which used to serve as a medrese (a type of school) under the structure and the square-shaped mosque was built on it. Despite the plainness of the structure’s exterior, the minbar, the mihrab, the parapets, the ceiling and some other parts were decorated with botanical, realistic and geometrical motifs. This shows the contradiction between the interior and the exterior of the mosque. It needs a comprehensive restoration.
