City mosque

The city mosque was built with funds from local Muslims. Among them were active merchants: Ibragimov Makhmutbay, Sadykov Akhmet and others. The first complex was built in the form of a two-story building, a hostel for those who arrived from the village, a stone pit, a cellar, dwelling houses for mosque employees, a house for a muezzin, a place for tethering cattle, a summer prayer zone and a stone fence four feet thick, one arshin. In 1932 the mosque was given over to the regional printing house. During the war, the materials of the stone fence and other buildings were given for the construction of the workshops “Rentgen” and “Selmash” and other construction projects. In 1989, the mosque was returned to the local Muslim community. The height of the mosque is 6.7 m.
