This is a very big, relatively new (like everything in Ashgabat) mosque. Both the exterior and interior are beautiful. Unfortunately, you cannot take photos of the interior.

This mosque was built by and for Turkish marble builders. It is fairly small and beautiful in its own way. It is set in a small garden.

This mosque was built by Turkey and is true to their style. The scale is rather small which made for comfortable and easy visit. A female attendant led me (a male) upstairs to the women’s gallery so I could have a better perspective. I was...More

A refreshing mosque: not overwhelming, not loud, not decadent. On the contrary: a very clean, very simple, but stylish construction, with beautiful colors and symmetries. It even has bathrooms (large and clean), so a stop is almost mandatory during a city tour.

This is a living mosque, still used by people to pray. It's wonderfully decorated and well kept although when I visited the gardens hasn't been mowed. Nevertheless it's a great place to visit but remember that there are worshippers around so respect is paramount.

This mosque's proportions were copied from the Blue Mosque in Istanbul. It is a pleasure to look at from the outside, and has a quiet interior. There was only an old man sitting on the steps outside when we visited. He was very friendly and...More
