The Mosque in Chal village
The Mosque in Chal village This is the oldest mosque in the Eastern Rhodopes. On a corner stone on the southern wall is written the year 1200 according to Islamic chronology corresponding to 1786 -1787. It is called Ahat boba djamisi after a worshipped saint, whose turbe is in the cemetery of the village. Another name of the mosque is Koyunllar djamisi after the Koyunllar family that had probably built an older mosque at the same place. The mosque was constructed with stone soldered with wood. The entrance area is open. The roof is supported by wooden pillars with carved capitals. The central room is rectangular and a balcony with beautiful, tracery railing is constructed over half of the space. Note: The place is suitable for tourism but the mosque is opened only Fridays for prayer or when necessary.
