  • Beautiful mosque in the center of the city, landscaped area with a fountain and lawn where Moruo relax and listen to the beautiful Adhan five times a day

  • After the heart of Chechnya Dagestan's main mosque looks very modestly. Similar to most Muslim mosques, traditional architecture.

  • Beside this mosque, we were just a couple of minutes before prayer. Crowds of men from all sides sought to the mosque. Under the feet of passing kidalis' beggars (so many beggars-women of all ages and children we haven't seen anywhere else-in the heart of the city, but they also have less), and they are not asking for charity, but require. It was all impression from the mosque, and after all she is a very majestic and beautiful.
