The Mosque


The mosque was built in 1757. Located in the old Bazaar district.
The mosque was originally designed for placement in the New Bazaar of Gjirokastra as a part of the urban plan of Memi Pasha.
In 1973, the mosque received the status of “Cultural monument” that saved her from the destruction of the totalitarian Communist regime of Albania. Because of the religious ban in Albania, the mosque was used as a training hall for circus acrobats.
