  • Kapu Camii (Gate Mosque) It is on Tevfikiye Street in the center of old town Konya. Its name comes from its location near one of the gates of the old Konya Castle. The original mosque was built in...  more »
  • Very good architecture, people are very helpful and easy to find English speaking people, also close to city centre.
  • A mosque in the middle of Konya's Bazaar called Bedesten. Friday morning prayers are considered to be very fairer. Once the late Tahir (BÜYÜKBELUKCU), 9 domes with the sermons of the teacher, the last Communion place with 10 marble columns reserved for the ladies, in Konya, the mihraps in the same line together with 3 mosques (the other two Aziziye-Selimiye) counted one, Aziziye, together with the mosque share the same fate in the fire but not as ornate; But the mosque, which is in a spiritual way with the old name "Ihyaiyye". It was made in 1658, but then it was destroyed (burnt), again burnt (1867) and made again in 2 years immediately after the fire. The mosque, which was then wood, was made of masonry and Baghdadi-domed between the years 1868-1869. There are 8 shops in the north entrance of the 3 entrance door (cascading) mosque. The add-on (shop and administrative building), which is in the west entrance, is quite disrupting the view. The mosque has no courtyard. One minaret and one-handed. There are ablution taps on the east wall. The roof is not a dome, but a conical shape with a hair closed. I think that's what they did for the expenses at the time (1868-69). The fountain is on the west side and in the square. The mosque was called Kapu because it was between the horse market and the stranded gates, which are two of the 12 gates of Konya Castle. (If the word "door" is the subject, the last letter is read by the item, not the "Kapu") Meanwhile, there is a Kapu mosque in Giresun. The mosque, which was repaired many times, saw a thorough repair in the last 1998. Apart from the place where there are domes in the mosque, the sides carry flat ceilings and 16 wooden poles. The domes are pillars, and the flat ceiling carries wooden poles. The dome in the middle of 9 dome is bigger than the others. The mihrab is the tile. The place is hard. Tesbihat is being done, after the morning prayer, sometimes there is a treat (bread). Thanks to everyone who contributed.
