  • This is Diyarbakir's largest mosque and, after the Grand Mosque, probably the prettiest. The dome is impressive and beautiful blue Iznik tiles girdle the interior. The outside entrance way is...  more »
  • The mosque is the work of Mimar Sinan and has a fascinating structure. The schematic of the mosque is the same as the fountain in the garden. Sadirvan was built on 8 stuns and the dome of the mosque was built on eight stuns. Water marble was used in the mimberi. When this marble is held by a lantern, the light on the other side reveals itself. Construction started at the same time as Selimiye Mosque. It's a must-see.

  • We made #ikindinamazı for the first time in the #Diyarbakır #Diyarbekir #tarihi #behrampaşacamii of #Osmanlıdevleti, which is in the #sanateseri and #mimarsinan school. The inside of the mosque was magnificent. However, due to the surrounding buildings, I was sorry that the children turned the mosque courtyard into a ball site, as in the case of the intermediate point. What to do with the lack of security personnel and the #Diyanet troubles caused by the concept of the neighborhood, #imamı of the institution's evil institution. It can only protect the mosque up to a point. Unfortunately, the mosque, which was open during evening and yacht prayers because it was not a security guard, was closed in other hours of the evening. It is impossible not to feel sorry for the current state of such an important historical mosque.... Nevertheless, even if there are negative conditions around the mosque, it is an important mosque that can be visited, visited, photographed and videos taken, and most importantly, it should be worshipped. Let us appreciate our historical values. Stay healthy. M.MUSTAFA KAYA
