The White Mosque ( Turkish : Beyaz Camii ) is a ruined mosque in Berat Castle. It received the status of cultural monument in 1961. But during the communist period, the mosque was badly damaged. Its minaret was destroyed. The prayer place and congregation place was used as a football field as it still is today.
The mosque is located just outside the citadel within the Berat Castle. The basic dimensions were 9.9 to 9.1 meters and had a wooden roof. It was built with red bricks and limestone, hence the name.
It is nicknamed as Clock Mosque because in 1870 the Ottomans built a clock tower next to it. Both were destroyed in the Communist period except for the minaret. After it, the mosque was renovated.
