The Yeni Cami (New Mosque) in Edessa City is the only mosque preserved until now in very good condition. Built in 1904 at the expense of Fechmi Hasan Pasha and was the sixth time a mosque in the city. In 1937 he was declared a protected monument in 1942 and inaugurated the museum. The building is inspired by Byzantine architecture and more specifically the model of Hagia Sophia in Istanbul. Today, the Yeni Mosque Byzantine houses and industrial archaeological artifacts from Edessa and the wider region. The collection is unfortunately not open to the public.
