Abu Baker al-Siddiq Mosque


History


A contemporary structure inspired by 16th century Ottoman mosques. It was built on the site of a former, historical mosque demolished during the Communist era.

The Ebu Bekr mosque dates back around from the 18th century. It was fully renovated and refaced in 1995 with monetary donations of Saudi Arabia. Visitors are welcome to go inside and marvel at the awesome interior and enjoy the meditative ambiance. On the outside, the building is beautiful and the surrounding park is clean and serene - which is a stark contrast to the busy and noisy streets nearby.

Description


 It's one of the only European nations with a predominantly Muslim population. It's not uncommon to see mosques with towering minarets with loudspeakers blasting away with afternoon prayers. The country boasts a solid mix of Turkish architecture and ancient medieval fortresses. Regardless of your faith or religion, there's no denying the beauty of these mosques.
