Saturday 11th June we were on a Full Day Tour of the City of Mostar and a visit to this ancient Mosque was the first places we visited.

It stands on the right hand bank of the River Neretva, a short walk from the Old Bridge, about 100 metres.

It is in the area of Tabhana which was once home to the leather tanners and their workshops. The name of the area is from the word Tabaci which translates as "leather tanner ".

The Mosque was constructed during the 16th and 17th Century. Hajji Kurt, member of the prominent local aristocratic family decided to have the Mosque built so that the Tanners could pray together.

It is tucked away and looks rathet unassuming, we were pleasantly surprised as we went through the small arched entrance with it's green door.

On entering the Mosque, one of the most striking features are the number of brightly coloured rugs.

There was a sense of calmness and serenity away from the busy streets outside.

Although the frescos and paintings, inside the Mosque, have faded over the years, traces could still be seen around the walls and retain their beauty and charm.

Our Guide pointed out the various features of the Mosque and provided us with information, historical, religious and social.

The entrance fee to the Mosque was included in our Tour price.

This mosque was built between the 16th and 17th centuries. Standing on the right bank of the Neretva River, about 100 metres from the Old Bridge, this mosque was next to the antque Tabhana, the district where leather processing workshops were once found; and this fact reveals the mystery of its name, deriving actually from the term Tabaci (leather tanners).

A row of small shops and its location make the Tabačica mosque one of the most frequently visited in Mostar.

Our guide told us that since the tanners were ostracised for being too dirty by the rest of the community, they built their own mosque to pray in. Sadly, there are no tanners left today.

Nearby, only their repurposed workshops remain. It’s a beautiful little mosque, full of colourful carpets and frescoes.

Tucked away in the bazaar & a row of shops it happens to be one of the most popular Mosques in Mostar so we came to learn. Well it certainly seemed to be well patronized by locals when we passed by.
To people like us from overseas, this culture offers some insights into areas we are only too lacking in appreciating.
Live & let live whatever your religion or personal 'makeup', should be the mantra we ALL should preach around the world.

This mosque was built between the 16th and 17th centuries, as desired by Hajji Kurt, member of the ancient Mostar Kurt family. Standing on the right bank of the Neretva River, about 100 metres from the Old Bridge. The entrance fees is KM 5, and many visitors do have an external look only.
