Battalgazi Neighborhood Located 10 kilometers north of Malatya, the small settlement once known as Eski Malatya or Battalgazi is home to two important monuments - the Ulu Cami and Silahtar Mustafa Paşa Kervansarayı. Visitors can also enjoy wandering around other Seljuk-style buildings in the area. A big new statue of Battal Gazi, a folk hero from Turkey, can be seen when entering the town. Although it is uncertain when and where he lived and was buried, most people believe he was alive in the 8th century near Eskişehir. The Malatya Ulu Mosque, also known as Battalgazi Ulu Mosque, was built by the Anatolian Seljuk Sultan Alaeddin Keykubad I in H.621 (M.1224). Over time, the original architecture has been changed or eliminated entirely. In 1273-74, a new section was added to the north of the building, and major renovations were carried out in the 1980s. In the Alacakapı neighborhood of Battalgazi District, Silahtar Mustafa Pasha Caravanserai was constructed by Murat's gunman, Bosnian Mustafa Pasha in 1637. The building features an open courtyard and a closed hall on a rectangular area of 68x76 meters. Upon entering through the arched entrance door, one can see a masjid, which can be reached by a ladder and is visible through the walls of the hall. There are 6 rooms lined up with vaults on both sides of the entrance, and the pillars stand on plain feet, topped off by three rows across.
