White Mosque

It is not known when the first mosque in Visoko was built, but it is thought that the oldest one is Serefudin White Mosque. 

It was built at the end of 15th century. Because it was dammaged a lot, at the end of 1970's, the architect Zlatko Ugljen made a project for new mosque to be built on the basis of the old one. In 1980 new mosque was built.

The mosque was built whithout windows simulating the cave of Hira (the cave where the Prophet Mohammad received the Qur'an from God). 

For that magnificant bulding the architect was awarded with Agha Khan Award for Architecture.
