Ebu'l Menuçehr Mosque, which is my favorite building in Ani Antique City. There are various rumors about the construction style and history of this mosque, which is the first Turkish Mosque built in Anatolia. After the Seljuk Sultan Alparslan conquered Ani in 1064, he left the city's administration to Menuçehr, the son of Ebu'l Esvar, the Emir of the Şeddatlı Principality and he built this mosque while reconstructing the city. The fact that this mosque, which is said to have been built in 1072 according to some sources and 1086 according to some sources, is at the top of the slope overlooking Arpaçay and Armenia offers us an excellent view. "Bismillah" was written on the minaret, which has an octagonal structure and has the effects of Central Asian Turkish Architecture. It is reached by a 99 starirs. The Ebu'l Menuçehr Mosque is the oldest Seljuk building known and has survived until today. Note: It is very famous to be photographed from the window of the mosque where you can see the Arpaçay valley and the historical ruined bridge on it.

Ani was an Armenian and a Christian city, a capital of Armenia, but it was eventually conquered by Seldjuk Turks, and it declined after that, today being just massive ruins. Before that happened however, the Turks chose to build this mosque. As the churches, it is built out of black and orange stone and while it seems a bit crude from outside, it is actually quite nice.
