Things to Consider in Choosing Muezzin Place(Loge)
There are many points to consider when choosing a muezzin place in a mosque. These points are listed below.
First of all, it is necessary to look at the architectural features and structure of the mosque to be placed in the muezzin place. The materials used, the size of the mosque, and the decoration technique of the different architectural elements inside should be effective in the selection of the muezzin place.
If the area of the mosque is small, a very large or very high muezzin place should not be chosen. Otherwise, the space will appear smaller, narrower, and more suffocating.
The material used for the muezzin place is also very important. First, it is necessary to look at the construction technique of elements such as the mihrab, pulpit, and altar in order to ensure integrity within the mosque. If these elements are not readily available in the mosque, elements that are compatible with each other in terms of materials and ornaments should be selected from the beginning.
It should be considered what feeling the mosque evokes in people, and when choosing a muezzin place, attention should be paid to the material at this point. Muezzin places, which make an important contribution to mosques in terms of aesthetics, can also affect how people feel.
