The complex of Hasandede mosque and tombs is located in Hasandede town, 10 km from the city centrum of Kırıkkale. The mosque was built by Hasandede (Dogan bey) in 1605 AD. It has been restored three times; in 1777 (by Mustafa Efendi), in 1807 (by Sheikh Ibrahim), and in 1894 (by Seikh Vali). The walls, made of red and brown “Kufeki” stones, are rather thick. The minaret made of brick is called “cherafat”. The mihrab made of plaster, is ornamented with geomatric shaped relieves. On of the tombs, on the west of the mosque, belong to Hasandede and the other to his sons.
