Kasaba Camii in Kasaba

Kasaba itself is a village 17 kilometres from Kastamonu. It is extremely rural, and there would be no reason to go there, except for the beautiful wooden mosque from 1366, the Mahmudbey Camii. You may have to find the imam to open up. The entrance door is a masterpiece of woodcutting, and the interior is typical for some sort of mosque you can see at only some places in the country. I know two similar ones (this one is better) in Ankara, a very good one in Afyon (often closed) and a rather nice one near Carsamba (near Samsun). I probably overlook one or two but be assured: this fine a mosque is hard to come by. The most recent addition I made may be the best series, so take a look at Eşrefoğlu Mosque in Beyşehir. Not to mention the considerable number of detailed pictures I could add after a return to this lovely spot in June 2009.

KASABA

Kasaba, Kastamonu’dan 17 km uzaklıkta bir köy. Son derece kırsal bir yer. 1366’da yapılmış, güzel, ahşap Mahmudiye Camii olmasa oraya gitmek için hiçbir neden olmazdı. Camiyi açtırmak için imamı bulmak zorunda kalabilirsiniz. Giriş kapısı, ahşap oymacılığı açısından bir şaheser; içerisi de ülkede sadece bazı yerlerde görebileceğiniz belli türde camilerin tipik özelliğini taşıyor. Ankara’da buna benzer iki cami biliyorum (buradaki daha güzel), çok güzel bir benzeri Afyon’da (genelde kapalı) ve hoş bir tane de Çarşamba civarında (Samsun yakınlarında) var. Muhtemelen birkaç tanesini gözden kaçırmışımdır, ama emin olun bu kadar güzel bir camiye rastlamak çok zordur.
