5th part of Drama cultural routes - 
MOSQUE “SADIRVAN CAMI”
(Armen & Agamemnon Streets)
 
 
AMONG THE MOSQUES that have been preserved to this day in town is the “Şadırvan cami” (Şadırvan means fountain of ablution in Turkish), the building which later housed the newspaper “Tharros” (at the junction of Agamemnon and Armen Streets). The wall paintings preserved since the the 19th century on the mosque’s porch –unfortunately now in poor condition– are of importance to the town’s modern history, as they represent what may be a picture of Drama (in the form of a paradisiacal town). Above the lintel of the entrance, there is an inscription on marble written in Ottoman script accompanied by two plant designs. The mosque is of stone masonry and has a rectangular parallelepiped shape. On its Southwest side, there is the base of the minaret, which does no longer exist today.
