Eşrefoğlu Mosque


This 13th-century mosque, pictured in Cornucopia 11, is one of the most beautiful in Anatolia, recalling central Asian traditions. It is on the north side of Lake Beyşehir in which cedar wood for its 42 columns were said to have been soaked before being erected, with capitals carved as they might be in stone. It was built for the second bey of Eshrefids, which established its capital at Beyşehir. He died in 1302 and was buried next to the mosque. The building is still used for regular worship
