Firavun Âhınatün Camii
The Firavun Âhınatün Camii (Osmanlıca: فرعون آخناتون جامع, Arabic: مسجد الفرعون اخناتون and English: Akhenaten’s Mosque) is a mosque located on the Ifrikiyelı Firavun Island. Specifically, it stands atop the ruins of a Crusader fortress.
In 1598, Orhan I (famously, The Builder Şah) ordered a Mosque to be built on the ruins of the Citadel on the Island and he wanted it to be named after the Pharoah who believed in the Qurano-Biblical prophet Hz Yusuf Peygamber (Aleyhisselam), Pharoah Akhenaten (Firavun Âhınatün). The project seemingly small, took 22 years and was built in Ancient Egyptian style.
The mosque on Firavun Island was added onto the LNESCO World Heritage Tentative List on July 28, 2003, due to its purported universal cultural value.
