Help rebuild Gazanfer-bey’s mosque in Visegrad
Image: Reconstruction of the Gazanfer-bey’s mosque in Visegrad started in late 2010. The first phase was completed in 2011.
Gazanfer-bey’s mosque in Visegrad was built in 1590. The mosque was vandalised by Chetnik forces in the Second World War, but was repaired after the war. A overall reconstruction was started in 1989. Just as it was completed – the mosque was dynamited and bulldozed by Serb forces in 1992. Until 2010 the area where the mosque stood was a park in the shape of a cross. In 2010, the Visegrad municipality finally allowed for the mosque to be reconstructed. The first phase of the recontruction has been completed but more funds are needed.
Donations for the mosque can be made to the Islamic Community representation office in Visegrad bank account:
