The bicommunal Technical Committee on Cultural Heritage is going ahead with the restoration of a mosque in Orunda (Orounda) in the Nicosia District, and has plans for seven more mosques throughout Cyprus.

Takis Hadjidemetriou, Greek Cypriot Head of the Technical Committee, told Greek Cypriot media that the Committee will initiate tender procedures immediately for the small mosque in Orunda. The project also provides for the restoration of nearby chambers, which were used for instruction in the past.

This was an important monument for Turkish Cypriots from Orunda, Hadjidemetriou said. He added that people from the community are also very keen to see the monument restored, noting that the initiative will send “important messages.”

More plans and designs are underway for seven mosques all around the island.  

Speaking finally about Zouhouri Mosque in Larnaca, Hadjidemetriou said that the Technical Committee will proceed with cleaning the outer surface, in consultation with Greek Cypriot Larnaca Municipality and the Antiquities Department.
