Alaeddin mosque was constructed by Muhiddin Mesut, son of Kılıçarslan, inside Ankara Castle in the year of 1178. It was renamed as Alaeddin Mosque as it was renovated in the era of Alaeddin Keykubat (Seljukid Sultan). Being as an example of Anatolian Seljukid architectural style, it has a rectangular plan. Calligraphys and architectural remnants from the Roman and Byzantine periods are displayed in the yard of the mosque. The tops of the colons inside the mosque and two marble pillars are from the Roman age. There is a stone base cylinder body minaret in the northwest of the mosque. Its minbar is one of the best examples of the Sel jukid wooden decoration- walnut embroidery and carving.
