    A beautiful modern mosque which is the icon of the city. Impressive when you arrive in the square and see the spectacular complex. There is a museum with a very old Quran, that you can see. It is a stop in the town.

    Very nice, huge mosque (according to my information ca 8000 believers) that they must have seen. She was very worth seeing over several hundred years one of the faith of the Muslim Welt.Auch the Quran issued from the 7.jahrhundert is written on deerskin.
