Mosque of Village Dengere in Çavd?r has been built within the tradition of Anatolian Seljuks’ Mosques with wooden vaults and supported by wood elemets. In the related sources, the tradition of mosques supported by wood elements is pointed out to have been originated from Central Asia and have been developed generally in the western part of Anatolia. In such mosques built in accordance with this style, colour has been used intentionally to empesize the plastical character of the structural elements. In this article, it is intended to familiarize (introduce) Mosque of Dengere which does not exist in any sources, except for the inventory inscriptions; and to examine Kalemi?i ornaments on wood of the edifice in respect to their features of composition, colour and patterns.
