  • When I entered I got lost. It is huge and it is not easily known as go to the large prayer hall. You have to move up a level in elevator or by stairs. The interior is beautiful as the exterior. This is the most impressive mosque of Astana

  • This is an amazing Mousque with golden dome with wide open yard in front centered by beautiful fountain. Located in the center of the city and very close to the piatrek tower.
