Aslanhane Camii Ankara

The Aslanhane mosque is also called Ahi Şerafeddin mosque.

A notice indicates (some editing by me): It was built by Ahi Şerafeddin’s father Ahi Hüsameddin with his uncle Ahi Hasaneddin in the years 1289-1290.

It is of a tall rectangular plan, with rubble stone walls where at some spots spolia (recled elements of earlier buildings) can be detected. 24 wooden beams have headings of reused Roman marble. The mihrab is constructed with mosaic tiles and plaster material and provides an original and rare example of a Seljuk mihrab. The mosque is also known for its pulpit made of walnut wood.

In 2010-2013 the mosque was restored.

As I took pictures of the mosque in its pre-restoration aspect I added those at the end of the gallery.
