I am delighted together with my colleague Qossay Eleyan to bring you our interesting report on “Discovering North Cyprus” from the Turunçlu Mosque, also known as Turunçlu Fethiye Mosque which s a mosque in Kadinlar Pazari Sokak in the Iplik Bazaar–Korkut Effendi quarter in the walled city of Lefkosa.

Before the 19th century, a small masjid or mosque stood  here and  in 1825, Seyyit Mehmed Agha, the governor of Cyprus, had the mosque built in the place of the masjid. Historically, the mosque was known as Fethiye Mosque and was located at the Mertek Market.
