  • Amazingly beautiful mosque in the city center. Not only is the mosque breathtaking, but it is also near the national museum and the palace of peace and reconciliation, making for an excellent stop on a walking tour of the city. After decades of Soviet rule with religion as a taboo topic, Kazakhstan is seeking to establish its identity as a spiritual and religiously tolerant society. When the new capital city was built, it included symbols of this movement in the form of mosques, a synagogue, and orthodox Christian churches. All are open to the public and interesting places to visit and learn about religion in post-soviet Kazakhstan.
  • Very picturesque mosque, we went during the day when there was no scheduled prayer, but there were still a handful of people in there. Males enter from left side of entrance and females right. Women have to cover most skin obviously and also are supposed to stay on their side (there are barriers) However, we are told by a local that usually tourists are allowed to roam around to appreciate the mosque(not gender restraint of where you can walk)
