The Imperial Mosque also known as (Albanian: Xhamia e Mbretit, Serbian: Царска џамија у Приштини, Carska džamija u Prištini) is an Ottoman mosque located in Pristina, Kosovo[a]. It was built in 1461 by Sultan Mehmet II Fatih.

The mosque was declared a Monument of Culture of Exceptional Importance in 1990 by the Republic of Serbia.[2]

History

During the Austro-Turkish wars, at the end of the 17th century, it was temporarily turned into a Catholic church. One of the most prominent Albanian writers, Pjetër Bogdani, also an active leader of the pro-Austrian rebels, was buried here. After the Ottomans regained control, in 1690, the bones of Pjetër Bogdani were exhumed and thrown into the street by the Ottoman soldiers.[1]

Notes

  1. ^ a b Kosovo is the subject of a territorial dispute between the Republic of Kosovo and the Republic of Serbia. The Republic of Kosovo unilaterally declared independence on 17 February 2008, but Serbia continues to claim it as part of its own sovereign territory. The two governments began to normalise relations in 2013, as part of the 2013 Brussels Agreement. Kosovo is currently recognized as an independent state by 98 out of the 193 United Nations member states. In total, 112 UN member states recognized Kosovo at some point, of which 14 later withdrew their recognition.
