Kocatepe Camii (Kocatepe Mosque)

Kocatepe Camii (Kocatepe Mosque) Review

It took 20 years to build this gigantic neo-Ottoman mosque in the center of Turkey's secular capital. Officially opened in 1987, the illuminated edifice dominates the Ankara skyline at night and is one of the city's most prominent landmarks. The prestigious mosque is the site of most military and official funerals. The Kocatepe complex also includes shopping venues on the lower floors.
