Chestnut Market Mosque

The Chestnut Market Mosque, which borders the Konak district in Izmir, is considered as a sophisticated work that deeply affects the city's skyline. The date of construction of the mosque, which rises among the many shops in Anafartalar Street where business life is extremely busy, is not clear. On the other hand, it is known that the Ahmet Agha mosque was located at the point in earlier times. In this respect, the Chestnut market mosque may have been built in the 1800s. The Chestnut Market Mosque has its own unique place among the historical mosques of Izmir. Because it is separated from many mosques by its architectural details. It has two storeys and a square plan for worship and the upper floor is covered with a dome. Downstairs there are shops and warehouses. There is also a final parish. This section serves as a crossing between the mosque and the courtyard with a single minaret. The mosque stands out in its exterior design with its large windows and stonework. Inside, it houses a beautiful altar, which is notable for its elegant decorations.The mihrab can be defined as a hollow area in mosques where the imam performs prayers in front of the congregation. The boards at the last communion place are also a must-see.

    Kemeraltı Çarşısı'nı bir tam daire şeklinde turlayan caddenin üzerinde 5 tane önemli, tarihi cami var. Bunların bir tanesi de Kestanepazarı Camii. İzmirli her orta yaşlının anılarında, bu caminin bir şekilde yer aldığını düşünüyorum.
