Dungan Mosque, Karakol
Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
See an unusual place of worship at Dungan Mosque, which features a construction style more like that of a Chinese Buddhist temple than Islamic mosque of Kyrgyzstan. Constructed over 100 years ago by a Chinese master who wanted to give the Muslim population a place to pray, the structure was built utilizing bricks and wood held together with no nails, and furnished with ornate decorative carvings and a curved, undulating roof. The last of eight mosques that once stood around the town, the site offers a rare opportunity to see a distinctive place of worship, unlike any found elsewhere in Karakol.

We made an interesting visit to this building although were not allowed inside and the ladies had to don hooded cloaks for respect. Lovely elderly gentleman at the entrance.
Meczet w formie chińskiej pagody. Ciekawe. Chińscy muzułmanie zaprosili architekta z rodzinnego kraju i stąd dziwna, jak na meczet forma. Koniecznie trzeba obejrzeć.Mosque in the form of a Chinese pagoda. Interesting. Chinese Muslims have invited the architect with his native country and hence the strange, as a mosque. Be sure to watch.show original
