The last congregational section is placed in the north of the mosque. The roof of the last parish, both parts of which are closed, is Wooden at first. However, this area is also changed when it is enlarged by the Association which belongs to Kurşunlu Mosque. Today the subdivision of the last communion place is considered as ablution area.
