Habibi Neccar Mosque

Habibi Neccar Mosque

The building, Turkey's oldest mosque, has maintained its entire glory since 638 and is still open for worship. Hatay, which is home to all the masnavi religions in its thousands of years history. The city, which is like the only fish in the sea in its geopolitical position, has repeatedly witnessed war and occupation. Muslims who aim to enter Anatolian territory to spread the religion of Islam take Hatay in 638 BC and build the Habibi Neccar Mosque in the same year. The building, which today has the title of the first mosque on the territory of the State of the Republic of Turkey, also bears the name of an Antioch neccar (carpenter) who believed in the apostles of Jesus Christ and was killed in defending the religion of Christianity. Habibi Neccar Mosque, one of the rarest works in Turkey in terms of its historical, religious and sociological importance, has a structure that combines semavi religions just like the city they are in. In the northeast direction of the mosque there are tombs of Habib-Neccar and Sham safa, and tombs of John and Pavlos are at the entrance. The courtyard next to the shrines, surrounded by madrasah rooms, is a 19th-century work.
