Prophet Suleiman Mosque

The Prophet Suleiman Mosque, known by many names; Nasiriyye, Mashhad, Murtaza Pasha, and Kale, was built in 1160 by Nisanoglu Ebul Kasim. It takes place on the edge of the bastion to the south of the Orun Gate in the Inner Castle, and the conquest of Diyarbakir started from here. Around the mosque, the sahabe tombs of those who were martyred during the Arab capture of Diyarbakir and Khalid ibn al-Walid's (the first two Rashidun successors) son Suleiman can be visited. The mosque was renovated by Governor Silahtar Murtaza Pasha in the 17th century.
