Night and day

If you think that Shah Abbas Mosque looks quite small, you will be surprised how many men stream out of it after a Friday‘s prayers. I could watch that one evening. Of course it had not been possible for non-Muslims to enter the mosque while the believers were praying. Everybody had to wait outside so that I could have a closer look at everything.
The Mosque lies in Ganja city hall square. In the daytime a lot of people sit in the shadow of the huge trees there or they simply go for a walk. At night the square is lit, and so is the Mosque. Its two minarets rise up high. The Mosque has got shebeke stained glass windows and other ornaments. On the whole it is not too ornate, but it is special. Its interior is plain or rather: humble. In this building functionality and beauty unite to create a substructure for religion. In any case you should not only visit the Mosque in the daytime. The atmosphere was much better at night.

Located in the city centre next to the main Ganja government building and Ganja mall. The 16th century mosque which was built during the Safavid dynasty is a functioning mosque, therefore visitors may have to be appropriately dressed and visit during non prayer timing.

Old little mosque in the city center.
Jun 2016 • Solo
This little interesting architectural creation is situated in the very center of Ganja. No information is provided on site and to find it one has to use guide books or help from locals as there are no signs showing direction to interesting places in Ganja.

It is an ordinary mosque with all its decorations from 1600s. Located at the center of the town nearby to Javadkhan street and City Hall. From here you can visit Bottle house and City Museum which are a few minutes away.
