The existence of both this masjid and its inscription is known through the antiquity registry file recorded by K. Turfan. His record from 1955 mentions a single-story rectangular building that is almost square, with a simple mihrab and pulpit underneath a Turkish-style tile roof.

The now-lost inscription recorded the benefactor of the mosque and the year of its construction. Today, a newer mosque with the same name — Hacı Zeliha Mosque — is at the address indicated on the registry file. The year 1971 is recorded on the door of the current building, which contradicts the description in the file and the appearance in the photograph.
