Alaaddin Mosque

45 Sakarya Caddesi

Seljuk sultan Alaaddin Keykubat built this camii (mosque) after the Seljuks invaded Sinop in 1214. More than 800 years later, it remains one of the most important Seljuk buildings in town. The mosque is revered for its features that include five domes, an ornate marble mihrab (indicating the direction to Mecca for praying), an expansive high-walled courtyard and a fountain that offers respite from the hustle and bustle of town.
