The mosque was built in the last century by craftsmen brought from China. Its was built using wood and without any nails. Its was the first mosque in Karakol. The entrance fee is 20 som. Ladies would be required to put on a robe that is available over there.

Very beautiful unusual mosque. We went at around 6 PM and I think they were having a prayer but that was not a problem, we could see the mosque from outside (past the gates but not inside the building itself). We did not have to pay anything but heard you must pay to the children if you enter? Short 10 min visit.

While staying in Karakol, my boyfriend and I went to visit the Dungan Mosque. When we went it was quiet and empty. We paid a 20som donation fee to enter and walked around the mosque. The architecture is very interesting. It was built by a Chinese architect, so it is very unique and unlike any other mosque I've seen. That being said, it could use a new coat of paint and some restoration work. In addition, we couldn't go inside. So there wasn't much to see! We spent about 5 minutes walking around before leaving.

If you're in the area it could be nice to stop by, but I wouldn't recommend going out of your way to view it!

This Buddhist style mosque is interesting to see if you are in Karakol. There is a small
suggested donation. You need to cover up but there are robes there. There are toilets there.

I went to the mosque because the weather was too bad for going hiking. It was a nice surprise. The mosque is small and colourfull. Tourists have to pay 20som and women must cover their hair (they provide scarves). Karakol is a small city, so visiting the mosque is one of the few cultural things you can do.

Dungan is the term used to refer to the Muslim people of Hui origin that fleeing violence in the 1870s and 1880s migrated from Eastern China to Kyrgyzstan. The Dungan mosque in Karakol is a unique structure whose architecture has many pre-Islamic Buddhists elements. It is constructed entirely of wood without using any nails and is colorfully painted in red, green, and yellow. In Dungan culture, yellow symbolizes prosperity, green symbolized happiness, and red wards off evil spirits.

Entrance 20 som. Open daily 8:00-18:00. Women must cover their arms, legs, and head; hooded coats are provided for free at the entrance.

Nice mosque full of colours. 20som to enter which is cheap anyway. Toilets are free of charge, it is a bit far from the centre on foot but worth a visit
