The Open Mosque Namazgah (Kerek Xhamia) was actually the first Ottoman building in Prizren. It was constructed in 1455, just after the Turks had conquered the town.
The Namazgah is an outdoor mosque for prayers of large groups of people in the open. The place underwent massive repairs and renovations in recent years.
When we visited the place, the local guard was more than happy to see some tourists around. Even though he didn't speak a word of English he tried to explain us the history of the open mosque and the city of Prizren.
Directions: The Open Mosque Namazgah can be found in a small park just opposite of Prizren's bus station. The bus station is located about 1 km north west of the old town.
