In Anatolia the Seljuks, Beyliks and the Ottomans have a documented history of building mosques. The mosques in Kahramanmaraş are mostly from the Dulkadiroğlu and Ottoman period. According to a book by writer and famous world traveler Evliya Çelebi, there were 39 mosques in Maraş. Towards the end of the 19th century, Besim Atalay's ‘Maraş History and Geography’ published in 1917, stated that there were 92 mosques. However, the number of mosques today is 46, after many were burned down or destroyed by the occupying French.
