София (Sofia, Bulgaria) - Баня баши джамия (Banya Bashi Mosque)

Its construction was completed in 1576, during the years the Ottomans had control of the town. The mosque derives its name from the phrase Banya Bashi, which means many baths. The most outstanding feature of the Mosque is that it was actually built over natural thermal spas.
