The Behram Pasha Mosque dates from 1572 and is the largest of the city. It was named after an Ottoman governor.

A Şadırvan (from the Persian ‘Sadirvan’) is a type of fountain that is usually built in the yard or entrance in front of mosques or other buildings where ritual prayers can be held, with the main purpose of providing water for drinking or ritual ablutions to several people at the same time, but also as decorative visual or sound element.
It is a typical element of Ottoman architecture. It is also called ‘abdest alma çeşmesi’ (= fountain for ablutions).
