Along Rustavelli Avenue stands the remnants of Tepebaşı or Thapha Bashi Mosque which was constructed in 1687. After the genocide in 1915 many families left their homelands and made their new home in Kond where the Persian mosque served as a temporary refuge for seventeen families. According to some sources descendants of 5 of the families still have their home in the mosque even though it is slowly deteriorating.
A common sight throughout the old streets of Kond are neglected homes with rooftops that are in the process of or have already collapsed. Many of the residents in this district simply do not have the money or the will to repair their homes and are living each day by the bare minimum.
