The Čarsija mosque Prijedor

The exact year of construction of the Čaršija mosque in Prijedor is unknown, it dates back to before 1840, with the assumption that the first mosque was built in this spot during the reign of Sultan Mahmud I (1730-1754). This is shown by the information provided by the inscriptions above the front door indicating the two earlier restorations of the mosque in 1840 and 1904, and the oldest preserved tombstone in the harem dates back to 1832. Čaršija mosque was declared a national monument in March 2003. After being destroyed in 1992, it was rebuilt in the same spot and the opening ceremony was held on 2nd August 2008.
