Religious Site Tourist Spot
Aziziye Mosque is an Ottoman mosque in Konya, Turkey.LocationThe mosque is in the district of Karatay of Greater Konya at about. It is situated in the business center of the city.HistoryThe original mosque had been commissioned between 1671 and 1676 by Damat Mustafa Pasha who was the husband of Hatice Sultan, the daughter of sultan Mehmet IV. But when it was ruined as a result of a fire in 1867, it was recommissioned by Pertevniyal, the mother of sultan Abdülaziz in 1874. (Name Aziziye refers to Abdülaziz)ArchitectureThe architectural style is a mixture of boroque and traditional Ottoman architecture. Nevertheless it has many features which make it one of a kind. It is a double minaret building. In each minaret the balcony (şerefe) roof is supported with columns which makes the mosque unique in Turkey. Unlike most other mosques its main floor is elevated and a ladder is used to reach the main floor. Also the floorspace is not wide and there is no yard. Because of the same reason Sadirvans (şadırvan, water fountains), are adjacent to minarets. The praying hall is square shaped and its ceiling is a big dome. The nartex has three smaller domes on six marble pillars. Another interesting feature of the mosque is its windows which are wider than the doors.Building materialThe main building material is cut stone. Bluish marble has been used in the construction of mimber and mihrab.

Where to stay in Konya

The religious and conservative city of Konya can accommodate all walks of life. You'll find a handful of hostels and guesthouses for the budget-conscious traveler, all within the city core and at walking distance from the city's biggest attraction, the mausoleum. If you want something a bit more upscale, look to the four- and five-star hotels, which are also within close proximity to the attractions. Because of the focus on the religious site, inns and restaurants rarely serve alcohol here. If this presents a problem, look for the few international chain hotels which are more geared toward the foreign traveler--these tend to feature a full bar offering.
