Sheikh Cabuk Mosque

While its construction date is not certain, it’s highly possible that it gained its present identity in 15th century. It had to restoration in 19th century. The mosque, which spreads on a large area with the walls of garden that can be called courtyard, is on a transversal plan which is a common feature of the mosques and prayer rooms in Mardin.

Main site consists of the nave covered by two transversal cradle vaults. It is possible that the site located in southern side and covered by cross vault is a tomb or an invocation room. It’s possible to associate the buildings, which are called with sheikh names about whom there is not exact information, to the eras when Turkish settled in Mardin.
