On our way from Ruse to Varna we made a stop in Shumen to see this mosque. At first sight it appeared to be closed, but kind people outside the mosque (later all of them came inside to pray) told me how to open the door and enter. The interior of the mosque really very beautiful and it is well worth a visit.

This mosque is one of the most beautiful I've seen in Bulgaria, and it's definitely worth stopping by if you are in Shumen.

The Tombul Mosque (Sherif Halil Pasha Mosque) is under renovation now (inside and outiside), but still worth paying a visit. The entrance fee is 4 Leva, but the beauty of this mosque is masked by the renovation, even if you can feel the historical and religious importance of it. The mosque can be visited everyday between 9-18. There is also a souvenir shop at the entrance.

If you want to stop in Shumen, this mosque is an top attraction to visit. I wasn't very impresed, because i couldn't enter to it, only in the yard I had acces. It is under renovation.

It's big for Bulgaria, but in Turkey, this will go unnoticed!

Mosque Sheriff Khalil Pasha, also known as Tombul Mosque, is located in Shumen. It was built in 1744. The architecture of the temple was influenced by the oriental architectural style of the tulip, which was characterized by the inclusion of elements of the French baroque in the early 18th century.

With the complex of buildings around it, the temple is the largest in the country by area and architectural significance and second place on the Balkan Peninsula after the mosque Sultan Selim, located in the city of Edirne, the Republic of Turkey.

Built in 1744, the mosque which is said to be the largest in Bulgaria is currently under renovation. You can still visit (from 9am to 6pm) and appreciate the interior decor and wall paintings. A beautiful work of art!
Exceptionally there is an entrance fee of 4 Lev per adult to help support the renovation works. You are equally handed a document available in various languages (including Arabic!), describing the history of the mosque.
Worth the visit!

Previous reviews say it's being renovated and it still is. There is scaffolding both inside and out, it's obviously going to take time to complete. What you can see needs a lot of wok doing on it but if it gets done it will look good. There are sheets you can borrow giving details of its history.
