Main mosque of Manavgat

Merkez Külliye Camii, The main mosque of Manavgat
Turkey, Side
The main mosque of Manavgat is called Merkez Külliye Camii. This is the largest mosque on the coast of Antalya.
The mosque was built in 2004. During its construction, 250 tons of metal structures and 500 cubic meters of concrete were used. At the same time, 4,000 believers can read namaz in the main mosque of Manavgat.
This is one of the few mosques that has four minarets with three balconies 60 meters high. The main dome of the Merkez Külliye Camii mosque in Manavgat reaches a height of 30 meters. In addition to it, there are 27 more small domes.
The presence of the word Külliye in the name of the mosque indicates the presence of a complex of buildings around the mosque, which should serve religious and social needs. This complex consists of a madrasah, a hospital, a kitchen, a bakery, a hammam and other buildings for various charitable services.

This mosque can be seen from anywhere in Side. Majestic, beautiful . . We were allowed to go inside after the end of prayer. Inside, ceramics, soft carpets, beautifully decorated dome. Near the entrance is a plastic box with scarves, even a couple of skirts. So even if you did not plan to visit the temple, and are dressed inappropriately, this is easy to fix) Shoes, of course, must be left in front of the entrance. The territory is large. There are other buildings. You can get water. There was a special feeling of peace .

If you are in Side or Manavgat - except for the beach and the ancient ruins - take the time to go to the local mosques. I did not expect such beauty. I have never seen a mosque from the inside. Even local small mosques made a wonderful impression: a lot of light, wonderful colors, ceramic tiles. National decor with tulips.
