  • This mosque is located in the city centre on the banks of the river Terek. Within walking distance from the hotel. Beautiful architecture, intnresnye painting interior with stars of David. Unfortunately, the mosque was repaired, but with the entrance one can imagine the appearance of a mosque.

  • The mosque is very beautiful, all such delicate. Despite the fact that the majority of Christians at the weekend about a mosque full of worshippers. Beautiful looks on the banks of the Terek River.
