The Melan masjid in Nepravishta village of Libohova has been proclaimed monument of culture of first category. This decision was taken by the National Council of Restorations based on a proposal presented by The Bektashi Global Headquarters.
The Melan masjid is situated in a special historic and geographic position and stands out for its style and architecture. It is composed by a complex of intertwined facilities. The main facility has a circular prayers hall, with side rooms and galleries, while its façade has an upper-gallery. The entire complex is constructed in the Epirus style with carefully cut stone blocks.
The masjid currently serves as religious center and pilgrimage site for the Bektashi believers while being at the same time a really attractive place for domestic and foreign visitors.
