Must see · Religious Site · Tourist Spot

The mosque, which went into service in 1998, was constructed upon a confiscated Armenian cemetery. It is built on a total of 52,600 square metres (566,000 square feet) of land and has a closed area of 6,600 square metres (71,000 square feet).
Sabancı Central Mosque was built jointly by Turkish Religious Foundation and Sabanci Foundation. The proprietorship of the mosque belongs to Adana Religious Affairs Foundation and its usage rights have been transferred to Adana Provincial Office of Mufti.

  • Presently the largest mosque in Turkey though soon to be overtaken by a mosque in Istanbul. The mosque is beautiful and set in an exquisite location: on the bank of the Seyhan River and in a park. The mosque is hard to miss in Adana; indeed it should not be missed. Unlike many other mosques worth seeing in Turkey, this mosque is new having been completed in 1998.
