  • Unfortunately under renovation when i have visited the place. Suggestive big mosque in the heart of the Turkish side of Nicosia, just close to the big indoor market. A magic place with a suggestive atmosphere.
  • Impressive mosque. Due to whichever power was dominating at the time, it was common in the area for Christian churches to be converted into Muslim mosques - or vice versa. In fact this used to be a Catholic cathedral as is obvious from the construction, but has huge minarets added.
