The Meçites Mosque was a mosque in Gjirokastra which was built by Hadji Murad in the 17th century. The mosque itself has been destroyed during the communist ban on religion and a house has been built in place, but a few of the original structures have survived. The seven fountains that belonged to the mosque are still intact, and some of them are still working. They were used for the ritual washing before entering the mosque for prayers. A bathing house (hammam) has also remained and some ruins of the minaret have also been saved.
