Dungan Mosque, Karakol
See an unusual place of worship at Dungan Mosque, which features a construction style more like that of a Chinese Buddhist temple than Islamic mosque of Kyrgyzstan. Constructed over 100 years ago by a Chinese master who wanted to give the Muslim population a place to pray, the structure was built utilizing bricks and wood held together with no nails, and furnished with ornate decorative carvings and a curved, undulating roof. The last of eight mosques that once stood around the town, the site offers a rare opportunity to see a distinctive place of worship, unlike any found elsewhere in Karakol.

Dungan Mosque Reviews
仏教寺院的な装飾に、幼稚園か保育園のようなカラフルな建物で、モスクだとは思えませんでした。しかし、いたるところに三日月の装飾を見ることができます。 more »It was a colorful building like a kindergarten or nursery school with buddhist temple decoration, and it didn't seem to be a mosque. But you can see crescent decorations everywhere.
