Kocatepe Mosque is one of the cultural wonders of the 20th century. Located in the centre of the Turkish capital, the religious building was built over 20 years and can hold 24,000 worshippers at any one time.
The Kocatepe Mosque is easily accessible from a well-located Hotel in Ankara, Turkey. The Radisson Blu Hotel Ankara provides guests with some of the best views of the city as well as elegant and stylish rooms to relax in during their stay.
Exploring the Kocatepe Mosque in Ankara
Visible from almost anywhere in Ankara, the mosque went through three main stages of construction before finally being completed in 1987. It is one of the largest and most impressive religious buildings in the world, with its four magnificent minarets standing 88 metres high.
Built in a neo-classical Ottomon style, the Kocatepe Mosque is open to tourists as long as they observe its various rules and rituals. Its marble interiors, tinted windows and resplendent artwork of its central dome are especially popular with visitors, with many finishing off a trip to the building with a stop at one of the surrounding traditional Turkish cafes.
