"Selimiye mosque" Selimiye Camii - Mosque - Cathedral of Ayia Sofia Tip by STARS_731

 
 

this mosque was made like a Greek orthodox church... but, during the Ottoman rule in the island, it was made a mosque by the Turks

now, it is in the north of Cyprus who is populated mostly by Turks

the 20% of Cypriot population is muslim... and they are generally Turks living in the north of the island

Address: Selimiye Sk, Lefkosa/North Nicosia
