It has a square shape and it was built in neoclassical Ottoman style with Islamic architecture overtones. The mosque roof is tiled, as was customary during the Ottoman period .The mosque interior was preserved without any alterations, keeping absolutely all the original details going all the way back to the construction phase: the wooden columns; the ceiling, also made of wood (cedar); the wooden balconies and railings. The Abdul Mecid mosque is also known as the Grand Mosque. Construction of the mosque was started in 1859 - 1860 and it was built to honor Sultan Abdul Mecid. Also to honor him, the town took the name of Mecidiye, after the Sultan’s name. A museum collection is displayed inside.
