  • Mosques are not many in Astana... So every mosque is precious... On Friday pray it get so full that hundreds can pray only in the open no matter how low is temperature out there... The mosque is full of social activities during the whole week... Kazakh and visiting moslems find there peace of mind, bond with each other and a place to perform their daily prayers... I found that too...
