Religious Monuments in Tokat

Meydan Mosque

The mosque was constructed in the name of the mother of Sultan Bayezit II and hence called Hatuniye Mosque. It was built on a large site in the Meydan quarter of Tokat city in 1474. It was badly damaged by the 1939 and 1943 earthquakes and has since then been restored and in 1953 opened for worship. It is a beautiful Ottoman period structure. The marble entrance is decorated in Seljukian style. Its major artistic features are stalactites and the tenon wooden gate.

Ulu Mosque

The Ulu mosques in Niksar and Zile towns are worth visiting. The Garipler and the Ali Pasha mosques are also worth seeing.
