“An old sanctuary to be visite.”
Review of Central Mosque

Reviewed 10 August 2015

I don't know how to review a place of worship. It is an old place. the doors look like pieces of art. the layout is not authentic. The toilets are ok. Do not, i repeat do not miss the little restaurant next to this mosque. It has the most delicious food in bishkek. You need to try. fresh and authentic food. People are super welcoming and they treated us like kings. Two menus were worth two coffees at sierra. That's how cheap this place is.

Although we visited many mosques on our trip, this one seemed very special. It may have been the atmosphere surrounding it or maybe the people we met during our visit. We enjoyed tremendously.

The central mosque is located on Gogol and Moskovskaya streets. The mosque itself is old and outdated that cannot house the large crowds that central mosques would accomodate. This summer a covered patio was added in the courtyard to give shade during the Friday prayer, that made it easier for the people to do their prayers. I don't know how it became the central mosque but there are many other much bigger and better organized mosques in Bishkek. For instance the Kassi Mosque on Moldobaeva, near Kassi university, where it got its name. or the mosque in Kok Jar mikrodistrict(Almatinka and Ahunbaeva). Currently there is a huge mosque being built behind Dostuk hotel, that will add an architectural texture to the city, and can house tens of thousands of worshippers.
