Good day, my friends!
Today I want to remember a little about my trip to Kazakhstan. I spent some time in Kazakhstan and visited a beautiful city called Astana. Astana is the capital of Kazakhstan and many Muslims live here.
I like to learn new faith for myself and Muslims seem very nice and kind people to me, therefore, together with my daughter I decided to visit one of the main mosques of the city - Khazret Sultan.
The Khazar Sultan Mosque is one of the most modern and beautiful mosques in Kazakhstan. The mosque was opened in 2012 and became the property of the city.
We walked around the whole mosque of Khazar Sultan and took some photos. The mosque is stunningly beautiful and it reminded me of Aladdin's palace, because the mosque is so similar to a fairy palace in its majestic beauty and decoration.
Also, the Khazar Sultan Mosque is the second largest mosque in Central Asia.
My daughter was very keen on soap bubbles, so I took a few of these hilarious photos.
Khazret Sultan in translation from the Kazakh language is "Saint Sultan", and a mosque was named in honor of the sheikh of the 12th century, Khoja Ahmed Yassawi, who was also an outstanding poet of Asia. Among other things, he is considered a saint in the Muslim world, and his mausoleum is in Turkestan. The mosque built in his honor simply could not be less majestic - the colossal structure resembles with its outline the most beautiful eastern palace.
Inside the mosque looks no less beautiful and resembles a golden palace. The whole mosque is covered with soft carpets of green color. At the entrance to the center of the hall you can see a small fountain with green plants.
The mosque is built in a classical oriental style with a bright design. In the center of the room there are crystal chandeliers that shine with their brilliance.
All women at the entrance to the mosque must wear a long cloak with a hood. Also, before entering the mosque, you must remove your shoes and go barefoot into the mosque.
Next is the prayer hall, which can include only Muslims. The prayer hall is fenced with red threads and tourists can not pass beyond this fence.
In the prayer hall, a very pleasant atmosphere prevails, which very calms and helps to recharge spiritual energy.
I really liked my trip to the mosque Hazret Sultan. It seems to me that I visited a fairy tale and was able to learn more about the Muslim faith and its extraordinary beauty.
By the evening we were on the street and I took some more photos of the mosque against the background of the evening sky .. It was amazingly beautiful!
I hope you also liked my trip to the mosque of Hazret Sultan and you plunged into a beautiful fairy tale.
