Bagbanly (Bokbonly) Mosque is a small quarter mosque from the early 19th century. It is located to the south of Islam-Khodja Minaret. We know its architect, Pahlavan Kuli, and the master who made the carved door – Ruz Muhammad. A sphero-conical dome crowns the square hall. The mihrab is located in the southern niche. The aivan has a flat beam roof with two carved columns on marble bases. The columns are much more ancient than the mosque. Ornamental zones alternating with inscriptions decorate each column. Similar columns in Djuma-Mosque date from the 14th-15th centuries.
