Bab’üs-Sor (Melik Mahmut) Mosque

The mosque is located on a small square on the road leading from the Mardin Citadel to the Savur Gate. According to an inscription, it was built in the third quarter of the 14th century.

The main portal features decorative stonework and overlooks the square. The main space of the mosque has a central dome and is flanked by two barrel-vaulted sections.

A square mausoleum belonging to Melik Mahmut stands in the courtyard; however, the tomb is said to be empty, serving purely symbolic purposes.
