The oldest mosque of Turkey; Maybe the world’s oldest one…

It is mentioned that Turkey has a wealthy religious background. This background is dated back to beginning of time. It is also same for Islam history in Turkey. A cave mosque was discovered in Mardin province of Turkey. Southeastern Turkey has a wealthy historical background as it is the conjunction between west and east. Islam launched around 600’s AD. This mosque’s construction year is unknown due to the lack of inscription. It is known that it was restored in 1109 AD. It is guessed that it remained from Emevi dynasty era.

Firstly the registration of the ancient mosque is being expected. Then it will be restored. It seems that it is from the beginning of Islam history. As we know that early Christians also curved their churches to the caves. Turkey is a great destination for religious tourism for every religion.

Discover Turkey and witness the development of human being…..
