Gaziantep Haci Veli Mosque dec 2008 6807.jpg

From the web and a notice on site I gather this is the Haci Veli Mosque. This monument was originally built as a "mescit" (place of prayer) in 1645, but with the addition of a "minbar" (preaching pulpit), it became a mosque in 1690. In 1912, after extensive renovations, it took its present form. It is also known as New Mosque or Little Mosque.
