After more than 10 years, the Sultan Murad Mosque in Pristina, known as the Garci Mosque, opened for worship last night. Believers performed the first Tarawih prayers in Ramadan in the mosque, which was renovated by the Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TIKA).
Before the Tarawih prayers, the Principal Imam of the Pristina Islamic Union, Burhan Effendi Hashani, celebrated the opening of the mosque and the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan for the worshipers who were present.
Al-Hashani hoped the reopening of Kosovo’s oldest mosque for worship would be beneficial.
Restoration work for this mosque started in 2010 as a project, but it was never completed. The restoration work, funded by the Pristina Municipality, was unsuccessful.
After that, the restoration work was handed over to TIKA. The former mayor, Shebind Ahmadi, stated that Turkey is the only country capable of restoring historical monuments such as this mosque, and demanded that Teka undertake the restoration of the mosque, whose restoration work has been halted.
This mosque, which was built by Sultan Bayezid in memory of his father, Sultan Murad, who was martyred in the Kosovo War in 1389, contains all the architectural elements of that period.
