We have seen dozens of mosques but this Chinese design in and out makes this one distinctive. You will only need a short time to visit.

It is a nice place to come in and see. It is considered as a unique place to visit, I would not say that this is really unique.

Just like the orthodox church in Karakol, this place will only take you about 15 minutes to visit, but it is well worth it for its unique architecture. Colorful and peaceful, I have never seen a mosque like this. There is an entrance fee quoted...More

Interesting wooden mosque painted blue. Built by Chinese and so looks more like a pagoda than a mosque. It was not possible to go on on the day we were there.

The pagoda shape and touches of Buddhist symbolism make this mosque unusual.The little building is architecturally and culturally interesting but there's not much to do here. Robes are provided for women visitors so you don't have to worry about covering up.

Built by Chinese members of this religious and cultural group who had fled their homeland, the building has very good wooden carvings and it resembles a pagoda. We weren't allowed inside but it was easy to see through the windows. There were clean toilets in...More

We entered the mosque and paid a small entry fee of 200com We were asked to use the robes provided which we did, of course, willingly. It was a hot day and prayers were being said so we did not go into the mosque itself....More
