Mosque Minor-White mosque of the capital

In the new part of Tashkent, near the UzExpoCentre exhibition complex and the luxurious International Hotel, one of the new sights of Tashkent - the Minor Mosque - is located. It was opened on October 1, 2014, on the eve of the holy holiday of Muslims Kurban Hayita, and immediately became one of the favorite places for city dwellers for evening walks. The Minor Mosque is located at the quay of the Anchor Canal, and is surrounded by a landscaped area.The construction of the mosque began in the summer of 2013, and was performed in the best traditions of Eastern architecture. At the same time, the Minor Mosque differs from the ancient brick mosques with its white marble finish. On a clear day, it all sparkles, and its blue dome seems to dissolve in the sky. The capacity is more than 2400 people. The Minor Mosque is divided into an open front with terraces, and a huge round hall with a gilded mihrab (a niche pointing to Mecca), which is adorned with sayings from the Koran. The new attraction has not yet been covered with legends and yet has a rich history, but once in Tashkent, you should not miss the chance to see the Minor mosque in all its white marble beauty.
