    Kiliseden Camii’ye dönüştürülmesiyle beraber bir cami hükmü almasına rağmen kilise çanının kulesi de sabit bırakılmış, dokunulmamış. Burada bulunan rüzgar pervanesinin de olması sebebiyle Fırfırlı cami denmiş. Yapı olarak harika, içerisi de çok güzel. Biraz ara sokaklarda kalıyor o nedenle gözden kaçma ihtimali yüksek.
