İskenderpaşa Mosque
Iskender Pasha, who was one of the governors of Trabzon of the Kanuni era, made important contributions to the city’s development. The building inscription of the mosque with dates H. 936 and M. 1529 is on the front entrance door. There is also an inscription for the repair of the year 1882, which was made here today. The courtyard was destroyed and the cemetery on the west side was removed. Here, only the tomb of İskender Pasha was left. The vases were made at different times and their originality was damaged by repairs. It has a very good stone workmanship. The minaret was made in alternate style with bricks and colored stones. The main plan is similar to the Green Mosque in Iznik.
