Kayseri Tomarza’da İkinci Abdülhamit Döneminde İnşa Edilmiş İki Yapı: Merkez Camisi Ve Müftülük Binası

Özbek, Yıldıray
This paper examines two buildings, the central mosque and the muftuluk building at Tomarza both built at the end of the Abdulhamid II Era. The inscription dates the central mosque construction to 1906, to replace the Hac Huseyin Mosque built in 1745, after its collapse. Following the plan of the famous Green Tomb or Mosque in Iznik, the mosque attracts attention with its portal arranged in neo-classical and empire style and its embroidered window order with coloured stones. Two storeyed muftuluk building with circular plan was built in 1904 to the west of the mosque. The upper floor of the muftuluk building projects out from the facade and gives a special elegance to this piece of architecture. The monumental gate of the mosque protruding like a portal on the other hand, gives the design of the muftuluk building its unique character, besides creating the inviting entrance. This is found to be very similar to the entrance block of the guest house at Surp Asvadzadzin Monastery, which unfortunately did not reach the present date. The paper proposes a reading of the original function of both buildings and suggests that the building of muftuluk and the monastery built at the end of the 19th century, might be the works of the same architect or the master builder.

Cylindrical rock columns in the Great Mosque in Diyarbakir Old City are investigated for their lithology and architecture. The columns belong to four different rock types, namely pre-Tertiary meta-ophiolites, Eocene limestones, Miocene limestones and Plio-Quaternary basalts. The columns from the first three lithologies are reused during the construction and/or renovation of the Great Mosque. Thin sections prepared from 18 columns of this building confirm they are derived from the rocks exposed in the region...

It investigates whether the conformity of mosque components and finishing is due to historic, current and local Islamic prescriptions; due to functional purposes and necessities, or merely as an imitation of the stereotype styles for loyalty to mental and habitual traditions regardless of functions. The main objective of this...
