Kul Sharif Kazan
The impressive Kul Sharif opened in 2005 after a nine year construction project to rebuild a mosque near the site of the original mosque, which was destroyed in the 16th century.
The striking modern building brings together local architectural traditions and contemporary design, representative of Kazan and the Tatar region. Set within the walls of the Kazan Kremlin
, the Kul Sharif can accommodate 6,000 worshippers and visitors.
