  • The Esmahan Sultan Mosque from Mangalia is one of the most important historical and religious monuments of southern Romanian seaside. The Muslim place of worship was built in 1573 by the daughter of one of the greatest rulers of the Ottoman Empire, Selim II, in memory of his father. The mosque is built of cut stone, recovered from the Callatis ruins, and was executed by a team of Turkish craftsmen. A feature of the building is that the stone blocks were joined together without using any binder, but only with cast steel staples placed in holes made in stone. On the outside, the building takes on a particularly due to the porch pillars and wooden railings. Inside the worship place a fountain made of stone from a ancient tomb can be found. Also, the mosque is surrounded by a cemetery as valuable as the monument itself containing Muslim graves older than 300 years.
  • Superb visiting site... real history lesson. Nice turkish theme souvenirs at the gate. Welcoming staff.
