Burmalı Mosque

Evliya Çelebi, mentions it (VIII, 1966, p.42). It appears on the map dated 9 Ş, 1243 (February 25, 1828), (Halaçoğlu, 1974, p.93). According to the features of the minaret, it must date from the 15

th century. A photograph of the mosque that was taken before it collapsed exists showing that the mosque was roofed in the Ottoman style with tiles and porcupine eaves. The windows were most likely in a double row with the upper windows having arches. One of the surviving windows on the southern side supports this. The brick minaret on the northwestern side was supported with plastic traverses. The minaret has similar features as the minaret at Plovdiv’s Şihabüddin Pasha Mosque (1444-1445). The balcony on the minaret is newer than the minaret. Its spire comes from a later date. The mosque collapsed in the earthquake of 1941 (Tloupas- Nakos, 2003, p.77).
