This mosque was probably built at the beginning of the 20th century based on the date of 1908 above the main gate. The original form of the mihrab and pulpit are lost; both are currently clad in glazed tiles. The original minaret has a single balcony.
The mosque is oriented north to south and has a rectangular plan underneath a hipped roof covered with tiles. The semi-cylindrical mihrab on the south façade has been completely renewed and covered with glazed tiles. The pulpit in the classical order is to the west of the mihrab. The renewed pulpit is also covered with glazed tiles, bearing nothing of its original form. Glazed tiles were also used on the dais for preaching in the east corner of the mihrab.
Located in the northwest corner of the building, the minaret is the only original architectural feature of the mosque that has survived to the present day. There is an annulet between the beveled transition segment on the octagonal pulpit and the cylindrical shaft. Further up the shaft is another annulet and sawtooth eave underneath the balcony. A honeycomb gallery topped with a spire and finial is in the upper part.
There is no inscription indicating the mosque’s benefactor and construction date. However, the dates of Rumi 1324 and Hijri 1326 are written under the two-line verse to the right of the main door of the harim. Considering the inscription and architectural style, the building dates to the beginning of the 20th century.
