Some 5 monuments of culture belonging to Muslim religion will soon become subject to restoration thanks to an agreement between the Ministry of Culture and Albanian Muslim Community (AMC).
The mosques to be restored are the following:
King Mosque, Celibates Mosque, Helvetians Mosque in Berat,
Et’hem Bey’s Mosque in Tirana,
Bazaar’s Mosque in Gjirokastra
Some of these mosques are currently in piteous conditions due to the nearly complete absence of a proper restoration.
The ‘Lead Mosque’ in Shkodra, which has been repeatedly flooded during heavy rainfall, is also expected to be restored.
