This mosque was built in the late 16th century, and is named after one of the Ottoman commanders who helped conquer the island, Arab Ahmet Pasha. The whole mosque area is not that big. There is a large Ablution fountain in the courtyard and the...More

The Arabahmet Mosque is located in the Turkish part of Nicosia, in the area with the same name. The classical Ottoman architecture is present here, along with some important Ottoman Pashas who are buried in its garden. Definitely worth a stop if you're around.
