MEDRESSES

MEDRESSES

N° 21 q
Town / Village : Ammochostos / Gazimagusa

District : Famagusta

 

DESCRIPTION :

An interesting mescid is set against the side of the Ravelin bastion. It was erected in 1618 and there is a tradition that it was the first medresse (theological school) in the island.

There would have been several other medresses in North Cyprus, but very little now remains except for a building of classical Ottoman plan, whose first purpose was as a religious school adjacent to Lala Mustafa Pasha mosque (cathedral St Nicholas). Unfortunately the decorative painted plaster which used to surround the dome in the main hall has not survived.

Period : Ottoman period.
