Saban Ağa Mosque

The Saban Ağa Mosque. The mosque is located on the western part of the village square immediately north of the Seljuk Bathhouse. It is named after its builder. According to its inscription, it was rebuilt in 1876. Having been repaired several times, it stands complete today. It was mentioned as Tabakhane or Sulu Mosque by the famous traveler Evliya Çelebi. On an engraving of Hilair (1776-82), a domed mosque with a single balcony minaret is depicted.
At the northern entrance of the mosque is an anteroom built as a wooden roofed riwaq (portic) supported by eight wooden columns. The mosque measures 14,80 x 14,80. 16 Windows on the four walls supply light.
To the left of the mosque I found there to be a curious construction, I could climb down into some space and next walk all the way under the mosque, exiting at the other side.
