Biggest Mosque in Bulgaria Close to Ruin Down
The 260-year-old mosque is also the biggest one on the Balkan Peninsula, besides the Turkish Islam-praying religious temples.
The Bulgarian mosque, distinguished as a cultural monument, forms a complex of its temple and the monastery school attached to it.
According to the estimations of the National Institute for Culture Monuments, the religious building reconstruction demands over half a million levs.
Residents say that the mosque is frequented not only by prayers, but also by tourists from Germany, Japan, the United States, attracted by its historical and cultural merits.
An agreement between Turkey and Bulgaria envisages common financing of reconstruction works at the Tombul Mosque, the Bulgarian share amounting to BGN 520,000.
