Mosque «Hazret Sultan»

Hazret Sultan is a cathedral mosque in the city, the first largest mosque in Central Asia.

At the suggestion of the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev, the mosque was named "Hazret Sultan", which means "Holy Sultan". As you know, "Hazret Sultan" is one of the epithets of the Sufi sheikh Khoja Ahmed Yasawi, the author of "Divan-i Hikmet", whose mausoleum is located in Turkestan.

The construction of the cathedral mosque "Hazret Sultan" began in June 2009. On July 6, 2012, at 12:30, the opening of the cathedral mosque "Hazret Sultan" took place, which added to the list of unique objects of the capital. The building was built in the classical Islamic style with the use of traditional Kazakh ornaments. It can accommodate five thousand worshippers, and on holidays - up to 10 thousand people.
