That place was really amazing even despite of being very young (it was opened only in 2005). Everything was made to amaze the believers and usual visitors and to show that Islam is a bright and attractive religion. That is their website http://www.kul-sharif.com, it is going to be in English soon.

I was on a business trip in Kazan and had some time to walk around on a Monday morning. Of course, all the museums in Kremilin were closed, so I was pleasantly surprised to discover the mosque was open to tourists. It is a beautiful building on the outside, with its turquoise domes and minarets, but on the inside... oh... More

As photographer, I enjoyed every angle of the building, and was hunting for even better shots during sun rise and sun set... It is visible from many parts of the city, and it's a nice spot to visit. You can go inside and go up the stairs where people pray. Downstairs has a few mini shops and a museum I... More

It is literally one of the most amazing things I ever saw in my life! I was there on a business trip in May 2008 and had some time during the day to visit this mosque. It is very nice both on the outside as on the inside. And it is even more amazing in the evening with all these... More

I live here, in Kazan, and, of course, I'm proud of living in a city having such a beautiful mosque. This is really something worth to be seen.

A beautiful piece of architecture in the Kazan Kremlin. Our guide helped us better understand the basics of tradition as practiced in the mosque. I hope that its religious leaders keep on preaching tolerance and respect to others as they do today.
