The Ahi Elvan Mosque was commissioned by Ahi leader Ahi Elvan Mehmet Bey in 1382, and restored by Sultan Mehmed I in 1413. Built on a slope, it has a simple façade with a stone dado and brick walls, while the interiors have a wooden ceiling held up by 12 wooden columns belonging to the Roman and Byzantine periods. Its most famous feature is the finely carved walnut wood minbar (pulpit) with pentagonal motifs.
