Information About Tas Mescit- Stone Mosque
The section of the cure, which was completely destroyed due to being made of rubble stone, was built in 1235 by Cemalettin Ferruh of the Çankırı Atabesi (Governor) during the reign of the Anatolian Seljuk ruler Alaeddin Keykubat I. Cemalettin Ferruh built a Dâr-ûl Hâdis in 1242 in addition to the cafeteria. The first Dâr-ûl Hâdis in Anatolia is known by the people as the Stone Masjid. In addition to its architectural features, two other works of plastic art are important. The first piece, which is used as the “Medicine Symbol now a days, depicts two snakes intertwined with two figured stone works, one on the building and the other in the form of a statue. In the second piece exhibited in the Çankırı Museum, there is a snake figure wrapped around the cup, which is now used as the “Pharmacy Symbol”.
There are two burial chambers in the monument. There is a cist in the burial chamber on the northern façade, and there are five cisterns in the two-part burial chamber entered from the eastern façade. It is estimated that the corpses, which are known as cadets (dried bodies) in our region, were embalmed during the period. The coffin in the middle of this burial chamber is thought to belong to Cemalettin Ferruh, the patron of the work, and his coffin is located in the main room above the burial chamber.
The work, which is still used as a masjid, served as a Mevlevihane for many years until the foundation of the Republic.
