Kyrgyzstan tours:

Dungan mosque


During tours in Kyrgyzstan you will have an opportunity to visit various sites of historical significance but we recommend you not to miss the opportunity of starting to travel to the Dungan mosque. While making tours you will be informed that the mosque was created by those people who migrated from China in 1877. They found the place of inhabitance in Karakol and in 1907 decide to ask for help of the Chinese architect. This architect was from Beijing and with 20 local dwellers they created the mosque. Being in a tour in Kyrgyzstan you are required to travel to the Dungan mosque and make sure it is created without metal and nails, in the style of the Chinese temple. Even the colors show the nature of the place. While you travel along the mosque you will see that red color helps to be protected from evils spirits, yellow to bring wealth and prosperity, and green for the happiness to be in the house.

During the times of the Soviet Union it was prohibited to travel to this place as religious rites were prohibited. After the Muslim community gave the certain amount of money for repair works after WW2.
