It's naïve and also the most imposing mosque in the world we are in. This structure, where Russian and Ottoman architectural styles come together, fascinates those who have seen while preserving all its glory since the beginning of the 19th century. In the 1877-1878 Ottoman-Russian War, which also appeared on the pages of history as 93 Wars, Kars was taken by the Russians. For 40 years, the city is reshaped by building the most magnificent examples of Baltic architectural style in the territory of Kars, which was ruled by the Russians for 40 years. This architectural style, which is usually one or two storeys, is also found in three-storey structures, rarely. Fethiye Mosque, one of the most beautiful examples of Kars architecture restructured during the Russian occupation, is an Orthodox church when it was first built. The architectural integrity of the building, which was converted into a mosque by the Ottoman state in Kars, is preserved. Fethiye Mosque, which is used today for the worship of Muslims, symbolizes the liberation of Kars. Fethiye Mosque, which has recently been added and has an elegant appearance with its two thin minarets, which constitute an integrity with the main part of the building, is of great importance to the city's religious and cultural tourism.
