Afyon Grand Mosque

Today is the day Inspired Sunday! So I want to share with you a mosque from my hometown. It is Afyon Grand Mosque. In Turkish Afyon Ulu Camii. It has 40 wooden columns. It is so unique! I already wrote a post about this mosque in my Turkish blog. You can click here to read it.







Ulu Camii (The Great Mosque) - Afyonkarahisar, Turkey

It is an old mosque which I can offer you to come and visit. You will enjoy it. You can also climb Afyon Castle which you can see at the back of the mosque.

See you next Inspired Sunday!

  4. That mosque is incredibly beautiful - as they so often are. I have never seen photos of one which uses wood so extensively before. Thank you.
