Ahmet Hamdi Akseki Mosque, Ankara Overview

One of the largest mosques in Turkey, the Ahmet Hamdi Akseki Mosque in Ankara is a mix of modern architecture, Arabic calligraphy and ancient Islamic features. Designed in a neoclassical style, it has a majestic moonlight effect on the dome, created by directed lights from its four 66 metre minarets.

It can accommodate around 6,000 worshippers and has a dedicated praying area for women. Inaugurated in 2013, it is named after a religious scholar Ahmet Hamdi Akseki. The ceramic paintings inside the mosque reflect the history and culture of both Seljuk and Ottoman civilisations, adding to the mosque's beauty. It also has a bookstore at the lower ground level that predominantly sells religious books. Although it doesn't have a grand chandelier like most significant mosques in Turkey, its dome, which can be lighted by RBG fixtures in different colours, is a sight you don’t want to miss.
