İbrahim Çavuş (Yukarı) Mosque and Elmacık Village Mosque in the Kemer district of Burdur are examples of the tradition of mosques with wooden poles that started to be built in Anatolia with the Seljuks and lasted until the collapse of the Ottoman Empire. Mosques with wooden poles, which are commonly seen in Central Black Sea, Central Anatolia and Central Western Anatolia, can be also encountered in the Mediterranean Region. In the examinations we made in Burdur, the two mosques, which have preserved their original status compared to the other mosques with wooden poles, draw attention with their hand-drawn ornaments. Despite their very plain architecture on the outside, the mosques have a privileged stature with their interior decorations reflecting the stylistic features of the westernization period. This article aims to introduce two mosques that have not been published until now, and to reveal their signafance in Anatolian Turkish Architecture.
