The Tahtali-Jami Mosque (Ukrainian: Тахтали Джамі), Crimean Tatar: Tahtalı Cami) is located in Bakhchisaray, Ukraine. In Crimean Tatar: Tahtalı Cami means “wooden mosque”.

History[edit]

The mosque was built in 1707 by Khan Sultan Beck who married the daughter of Selim I Giray. It is the oldest mosque in the city and can be seen from almost any point of Bakhchisaray. It was originally constructed with wooden planks which were later closed in by stone blocks and masonry walls. The roof of the mosque is covered with clay tiles.
