Mugla mosque

This is an almost modern mosque. I was informed by a kind viewer that its name is Kurşunlu Camii and modern it ain't: 1493.

Kurþun means both "lead" and "bullet". But of course a mosque has nothing to do with bullets, so the chances are that it was covered with lead or has some lead engravings.

Thanks, Bora,

I used your comment in the text, as you can see. Am I right in translating the name as "Mosque with lead, often on the roof"? For that's why other mosques with that name that I know got their name.

The name of this mosque is "Kurºunlu Camii".
