  • From the point of view of history is a very interesting building: built in the year 1508, perfectly preserved, it can be seen that monitor external and internal view. Better not to disturb the faithful during the service, visit there after lunch, at the entrance to remember to remove your shoes. When you walk inside, you begin to understand that we must respect all faiths, so go from the mosque with some sense of humanity and peace, and the output to you kindly send guard. Incidentally, near adjacent Orthodox Church.

  • Kebir-dzhami mosque was built in the year 1508, in the 18th century, experienced a terrible fire, was restored in the late 20th century. The Interior impresses with strict asceticism and splendour of decoration. One mosque minaret, and the building looks like a creation of great Sinan-Juma-Jami in Evpatoria, although the latter was built only in the second half of the 16th century. There is an opinion, according to which the town got its name by the name of its main mosque. The thing that built on presented the Crimean Khan meñli I Giray Earth, the mosque was covered by a simple white plaster and therefore was called "AK-mosque", which means "the white mosque". In the Kebir-dzhami placed the spiritual administration of Muslims of Crimea and the residence of the Mufti. The complex also includes a madrassah and a Library of spiritual literature.
