Ebu Zer Gifari Mosque Quick Guide

This small neighbourhood mosque has been standing here since 1716 when it was erected by Grand Vizier Şehit Ali Paşa based on a dream he had had. According to his dream, he was to build a chair in honour of Ebu Zer Gifari, who was one of the companions of the Prophet Mohammed. The Prophet is recorded in the Hadiths as having said of Ebu Zer that he had the piety of Jesus Christ. In the courtyard of the mosque you will see an overgrown brick arch that is the remains of a section of a Byzantine tunnel.
