Charshijska Mosque (Çarşı Camı), Haskovo

Haskovo in Haskovo, Bulgaria
The name of the building is related to its location - both in the past and now - in the midst of the town's commercial core. Now it is almost completely enclosed by one-storey and two-storey commercial buildings and shops attached to it, which largely hide it from the view of the passers-by.
In the past, there were no other buildings in such close proximity to it as of special interest were the two large-scale fountains lying at some distance on both sides of the mosque outside its courtyard. One feature of the prayer hall is that its long axis is transverse to the direction of entry. The ceiling cover is two-dimensional. In the middle of the counter-wall there is the mihrab niche shaped with a relief frame. Overall, the interior is poor, largely upgraded and modernized (the wooden ceilings were removed, the walls were plastered, etc). A characteristic fresco with landscape motifs has been well-preserved in the niche. The external architecture (except for the minaret) is uncharacteristic and devoid of expressive power.

On the southern wall there is a plaque with Arabic writing, still undeciphered by scholars.
