Heart of Chechnya - Akhmad Kadyrov Mosque, Grozny

(4.9/5 based on 150+ 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.

  • The mosque was built in the year 2008. She almost repeats Turkish Blue Mosque. But has its own flavor, uniquely painted and framed in marble. Inside the mosque is decorated with chandeliers from Swarovski crystals. Chandelier in form the Ho reiterated the Muslim shrines

  • The largest mosque in Chechnya. Built like many other significant buildings in honor of a. Kadyrova. Free entrance inside the chic interiors, particularly impressive chandelier. religious object and it should be considered when visiting. you can do photo, the main thing is not to disturb the worshippers. Outside better viewing in the evenings because the backlight improves perception of the architecture of the mosque has 4 cigarette and a very large area, as it is still a cult place for half an hour you can see everything. When entering is necessary to remove the shoes.
