Some of the most beautiful aspects of mosques in Turkey are the minber (pulpits), vaaz kürsüsü (sermon pulpits) and mihrab (niche indicating direction of prayer), all made from woodwork, and today the Turkish Religious Foundation runs a special atelier in Ankara that aims to let these articles from religious life in mosques live on in a manner they deserve.
This shop, the Siteler Doğrama ve Mobilya (Siteler Woodworking and Furniture Atelier), runs within the larger framework of the Ankara Kocatepe Modern Store Management Industry and Trade AŞ (KOMAŞ). This special Ankara atelier oversees the production of wooden pieces for mosques with Selçuk or Ottoman-style architecture. Formed in 1991, the atelier produces a wide range of woodwork items for mosques. Some of the items turned out by this atelier include minber, mihrab, vaaz kürsüsü (sermon pulpit), rahle (bookstands), doors and kepenk (window shutters).
