Gaziantep 8271

You have seen the small mosque this entrance belongs to on several pictures, I like the use of black and white stone, that you will see in many more buildings. The mosque is not impressive.

Dear Osseman,

Thanks for the great pictures. Here is the story about this great mosque. Once upon a time a carpenter wanted to build a mosque for a gratitude for God. However, he could not be sure whether his money for this mosque was clean. Thus, in order to check the properness of his money, he put his money for the mosque construction into a wood and left the wood to the small creek, Alleben, in the city. He thought providing that this wood came back to me, I would be pretty sure about the properness of the money. One day, he was working in his store, a man came with the wood and asked him to make something out of it. When Ali Nacar (Ali the Carpenter) cut the wood, he saw the money and relieved at the end. Here is the story, Dick. Hope you will update the information.
