Minor Mosque Tashkent – Beautiful modern mosque

arts&culture
Art & culture

"Minor Mosque" in Tashkent was built in 2013. Its beautiful snow-white marble shines in the sun... I recommend coming to see it around sunset!

There are many mosques in Tashkent. You can find old ones, which could be centuries old, or new ones, like the mosque I am going to tell you about now.

The embankment of the Anhor Canal stretches to the north and south of Kodyri Street. The cozy green zone with numerous cafes and restaurants is popular among virtually all Tashkent citizens and visitors. It is pleasant to walk here in any weather.

A short walk north will lead you to the Minor Mosque. This fairly new shrine was erected only in 2013. It is very beautiful on the outside: the snow-white marble quite literally shines in the sun. The traditional Uzbek motifs and huge sky-blue dome complement the grandeur.

Come here at sunset: the white mass of a mosque with two minarets looks very cinematic at this time. Admission is free, but if you go inside, don't get confused: the prayer rooms for men and women are separated.
