Western façade of Great Mosque and Hospital of Divrigi. Sivas, Turkey. August 15, 2000.

 
Western façade of Great Mosque and Hospital of Divrigi (Divriği Ulu Camii ve Daruşifası). Sivas, Turkey. August 15, 2000.Built by the architect Hürrem Shah of Ahlat in 1288. This building complex was commissioned in the 13th century by Ahmet Shah and his wife Melike Turan of the Principality of Mengüçlü. Renowned for its monumental architecture and traditional stone carving decorations of Anatolia, this masterpiece, with its two-domed mosque, hospital and tomb, was placed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1985. The highly sophisticated technique of vault construction and a creative, exuberant type of decorative sculpture – particularly on the three doorways, in contrast to the unadorned walls of the interior – are the unique features of this masterpiece of Islamic architecture. The variety of the carved decoration indicates that is was carried out by different groups of craftsmen. The main characteristic of the designs featured in the portals is their uniqueness: each is distinct from other decorations.
