Safranbolu 06207 8122.jpg

This is the Izzet Pasha Mosque, dating from 1796. Inside a small group of pupuls was being taught how to pronounce Arab vowels, the teacher was very strict and it sounded like a shouting match between the master and the pupil, the master constantly indicating where the pupil made errors.

The mihrab, indicating the direction of Mecca.
