Do go to see this mosque and people watch among the faithful who gather here. It is a fabulous place to watch the world go by and should not be missed.

Although we visited many mosques on our trip, this one seemed very special. It may have been the atmosphere surrounding it or maybe the people we met during our visit. We enjoyed tremendously.

The central mosque is located on Gogol and Moskovskaya streets. The mosque itself is old and outdated that cannot house the large crowds that central mosques would accomodate. This summer a covered patio was added in the courtyard to give shade during the Friday prayer,...More
