Khan-Jami Mosque

Khan-Jami Mosque
It is considered that Khan-Jami mosque was built in 1552 by the Crimean khan Devlet-Girey, at least this year is inscribed on the North entrance of the construction. Khan-Jami represents a domical building with strict forms, which are very close to square. The central dome is 11 meters in diameter and surrounded by 11 smaller ones. Dozens windows illuminate the interior of the mosque and four entrances lead inside. The northern entrance is the main and the southern one leads to the balcony for khan. From wester and eastern sides two 35-metres minarets adjoin the mosque. During the Soviet times some parts of the building were destroyed and it was used only as a museum. Some renowations were made between 1962 and 1985. And finally from the beginning of 1990s the mosque has been used as a sacred place. 

Admission from 15Hr.
