Heart of Chechnya - Akhmad Kadyrov Mosque, Grozny
(4.9/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
The Akhmad Kadyrov Mosque is located in Grozny, the capital of Chechnya. It is supposed to be the largest mosque in Russia and is officially known as the "The Heart of Chechnya" .The mosque is named after Akhmad Kadyrov who commissioned its construction from the mayor of Konya. The mosque design with a set of 62m-tall minarets is based on the Sultan Ahmed Mosque in Istanbul.On October 16, 2008, the mosque was officially opened in a ceremony in which Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov spoke and was with Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin. In this mosque, ten thousand Muslims can pray at a time. This means that the statement of mosque being the largest in Russia is not true, as e.g. Makhachkala Grand Mosque in Dagestan has space for 15,000 to 17,000 worshipers.The mosque contains one of Muhammad's relics, a 1400-year-old bowl used by Muhammad which after his death was allegedly kept by his daughter Fatimah and her husband Ali.

  • Beautiful, grandiose construction, despite the fact that my faith is not a Muslim is very impressive decoration. Especially beautiful at night when colored lighting from different angles and when you are nearby and held service through the speakers voice sounds Mullah in Arabic. Respect other people's traditions.
