Nasrullah Kadi Mosque, standing in the center of Kastamonu with all its majesty; the square, the fountain, the bridge and the madrasah added afterwards is almost a large complex. By Nasrullah Kadi. The mosque, which was built in 1506 during the Beyazıt II period, is a candidate to be Kastamonu's largest place of worship when viewed along with the water pools and bridges inside the fountain. The calligrafies and decorations written within the mosque were written in person by Şevket Efendi, one of the most famous penman of Kastamonu. The mosque, which was created in a form with a six-domed structure, was expanded to nine domes by 1746. In 1752, a philanthropist named Bedii built two domes in the fountain section. Such an architecturally enormous structure has of historical significance, of course. Our National Poet Mehmet Akif Ersoy in order to support the War of Independence during the National Struggle; He preached at nasrullah Kadi Mosque to encourage the people. In the meantime, it is worth noting a myth that is said in public: The person who drinks water once in this fountain visits Kastamonu seven times in his lifetime or settles in Kastamonu.
