The Wooden mosque, Podkova village
The Wooden mosque, Podkova village The mosque is located in Podkova village. It is an entirely wooden building - a specimen of an old construction technology. It was constructed without the use of nails. The legend says that it was built by seven girls in one night after which nobody ever saw them again. That is why it is called “Edi kazlar dzhamisi” (The mosque of the seven girls). In the area could be seen as well ancient cutouts and grooves in the rocks. Local people claim that those are the traces left by the huge wooden logs used for the construction of the mosque. The mosque is still functioning and in 2009 it was renovated preserving the old way of construction. The place is a monument of culture. Note: It is accessible by car.
