King Mosque (Xhamia Mbret)

The King Mosque (Xhamia Mbret) is part of the Islamic Center complex of Berat. It was built by Sultan Bajaziti II in the fifteenth century, and it became Cultural Monument in 1948. The mosque features an impressive ceiling mural in the prayer hall, with rosettes inscribed with suras from the Qur’an. A fresco below the ceiling contains 99 beautiful names of God.

There is also a prayer porch built in the late XVIIIth century by Usta Dush Barka. The upper part of the minaret was rebuilt in recent years. From outside the mosque is totally plastered and the stucco is painted to imitate its masonry.
