Agha Cafer Pasha Mosque in Kyrenia - Cyprus

The mosque, in an obviously Ottoman style, was built in the 1580’s, although some sources claim the building was converted from a Lusignan warehouse. The rectangular building has three main rooms and a single minaret. It is named after the Ottoman landowner who donated the land where it is built.

Alongside the mosque is the Hasan Kavizade Huseyn Efendi fountain. The fountain was built in 1841. The northern side has three arches, and is typical of the Ottoman design in the mid 19th century. In the middle arch there is a crescent, a coat of arms and branch figures carved into the stonework.;
