Lonca Mosque

Bergama / İzmir

Lonca Mosque

Brick and cut stone were used as an alternative for the walls as a building material. There are two rows of porcupine eaves on the body walls of the harim, and three rows on the octagonal drums of the domes. The body of the minaret, located in the northwest corner of the last congregation place, rises on a cubic pulpit and a short shoe. Rectangular planned narthex is covered with a dome. The entrance to the harim is through a door opening with a pointed arch. The dome covering the harim rests on the walls. Turkish triangles are seen in the transition to the dome.

The history

The building does not have an inscription, but it is possible to date the Lonca Masjid to the middle of the 15th century.
