  • If you did not see such a converted church, you could go and see, its interesting. No christianity pictures on the walls, no objects of course.  more »
  • This is so clearly a Greek Orthodox Church converted into a Mosque. As such it synonymous with the surrounding character of the neighbourhood. Very eye catching and only a short walk central Ayvalik  more »

  • it was a beautifull greek orthodox church, i suppose. now the interior is nothing important as a mosque.
  • Good place
  • the Orthodox Church of Agios Ioannis circa 1850. in 1928, converted into a mosque. İkonaların except for the coloring of the change has been made on them. In the balcony scheme. Out of the Minaret, appended to the pulpit into the face towards Mecca. Minaret 44 m in height, is the highest point of Ayvalik. Is open for worship. It's called "Clock mosque" but it's not working, I'm afraid. :)
