Camlica Camii

The Camlica Mosque, or Çamlıca Camii in Turkish, is located at Istanbul, Turkey’s Çamlıca Hill. Upon completion, the project will have a 110,000 square meter (1,184,030 square feet) footprint, serving 29,700 people from the surrounding Kisikli Mahallesi. While there has been a great number of individuals who support, and oppose this project, we would like to hear your opinion. Please visit the following videos, images, and articles to learn more – and then weigh-in through our anonymous four-question survey available in both English and Turkish.
