In 1901 wooded buildings of the town including the mosque were burnt. In 1905 stone mosque was erected in the place of the old mosque by finances of Fatach Ramazano, local merchant. It was overarched with minaret, spire of that had silver moon. Mullah read namaz from this minaret during many years. The mosque was painted in white color therefore it was named “The White Mosque". The new stone building was surrounded with ennobled square and fences.

In 2005 in the year of the mosque's centenary restorations and capital repair were conducted in it. After one year the renewed mosque opened its doors for all people.
