"curious note about the mosques." Turkey Local Custom Tip by cachaseiro

Turkey Local Customs: 407 reviews and 378 photos

  a commercial mosque.
by cachaseiro

a lot of the mosques in turkey rent out part of the building to private shops.
it looks a little strange with electronic shops and hardware stores in the building of religious worship, but i think it's pretty cool that the guys have a little buisness sense.
it saves a little tax money and people can combine their prayers with shopping.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
