jumaya jamia, Plovdiv: 3 reviews and 11 photos
Djumaya Mosque, known also as Ulu Mosque, is a precious architectural monument in the center of Plovdiv that gives an idea of the old settlement of Filibe. It is one of the biggest and the oldest mosques in Bulgaria. It is called Djumaya (from Turkish ? Friday), because the service was held in Friday.
It is believed to be built as an imperial mosque by Shihabedin pasha.
Downstairs there is a pastry shop with delicious Turkish delights.
The only thing people in Plovdiv do not like about the mosque is that it is still working.We believe it should be a monument of the culture but not functioning.
Address: Roman Stadium Square
