Front of the Evliya Camii or Mosque of saints. One of nine Ottoman mosques built during the public works started in 1579 by Lala Mustafa Pasha in Kars. Ebu’l-Hasan Harakani [was] one of the Pioneer Saints who came to Anatolia [and] fell martyr in Kars. Ottoman Sultan Murad III ordered the construction of this mosque at the tomb site of the saint. It was restored and reopened for prayer in 2000. The structure was registered and placed under preservation status.
