The Molla Nakip Mosque is a mosque in Pazarkapi district of Trabzon, Turkey.

History[edit]

It was built in the 10th or 11th century, during Byzantine times as a church, and received its present name and function after the Ottoman conquest of the city in 1461. The north entrance was built by the Ottomans. In 1975 a large restoration took place and the ceiling was covered with concrete. The building has three naves and their apses are made of ancient stone blocks.[1]
