Balcıoğlu Mosque

   According to archives, Hasan Ağa had the Mosque built in place of the old mosque in 1921 (1340 according to Muslim calendar). Still open to worship, the construction was renovated in 1994-1995 by Regional Directorate of Foundations. Situated in Balcıoğlu district, the Mosque is surrounded by a Quran Course Center on the north-western corner; a fountain on the east; a hazire, with its tombs of various Ottoman royal family members on the west. Square shaped main space consists of a minaret on the north-west and an open narthex placed on four wooden beams. The construction is quite simple in terms of decoration. Today, it seems as if it was newly-built except for its stone minaret and mihrab, a niche showing the direction of qibla (direction of Mecca).
