Mosque in Aksaray - once again.


17th May 2015




The Mosque in the centry of city. Gathering - Holy Day. After that ceremony my friend Halit- Turkish English teacher was my guide in the Mosque. So I could take some nice photo .. inside. It was very interesting tour intio the past


The carpets are very clean because you have to take off your shoes entering the Mosque.. The carpeting is changed every 3 years..

It is very spacious.

Today Aksaray is a quiet mid-size city. In recent past, many inhabitants migrated to BritainGermany and other European countries for job opportunities.

  7. Amazing history. That grandfather clock looks just like ours -- although I'll bet it's a bit older!
