Sultan Murad III builds of the Grand Mosque. But, because of iranian attacks, Shah Abbas's armies destroy large parts of the mosque and damage it. When history shows the 17th century, Sultan Ibrahim, the Sultan of the period, orders Kars Governor Dilaver Pasha to rebuild the mosque... Open for many years to worship the people of Kars, the mosque was also used as a long-standing arsenal during the Ottoman Russian war. The Grand Mosque restored last in 1997.
