The Great Mosque is located in Divrigi in Sivas, Turkey and had been comissioned by Bey of Mengucek Emir Ahmed Shah and stands fully intact today. Mengucek being an Anatolian Turkish Beylik of the first period (before Ottoman and Selcuk Empires). Adjoining the mosque there is Madical Center (known as Darussifa). It is considered as one of the most important works of architecture of Anatolia. The geometrical and floral patterned reliefs found on the main door in particular attract great interest.
