The Minor Mosque

In the capital of Uzbekistan, on the bank of the Ankhor river, there is a Minor mosque - one of the newest attractions of Tashkent. 

The opening of the mosque took place before a significant event for the Muslim world – the Eid al-Fitr holiday in 2014.

During construction, all the norms for traditional Oriental architecture were observed, but the mosque differs from the more ancient ones in its white marble decoration. It can accommodate more than 2,500 people. On Sunny days, the shrine shines in the sun.

The Minor consists of a grand avenue planted with greenery, and inside there is a large hall decorated with quotations from the Holy book of the Koran and a mark pointing to Mecca made of gold.

Despite the fact that this is a fairly young attraction, it must be visited.
