Well worth a visit. This was our second sight visited after the earthquake memorial and it has several buildings of interest in the immediate vicinity. You'll probably need a taxi ride to get to it to avoid a long walk in the Uzbek summer heat. The most remarkable thing inside is the Uthman Qur'an, which is believed to be the... More

Functioning 16th c mosque whose main attraction, apart from the building itself, is the famous Uthman Qur'an which is thought to be the oldest in the world. Also has a small library containing examples of Qur'ans from around the world (and in some surprising languages too). Worth a visit.

Beautiful mosque. We visited this on the beginning of our tour so was our first glimpse of stereotypical central Asian architecture. It is lovely with a mausoleum of someone famous (can't remember who!) nearby. Also some pretty gardens and Islamic school in vicinity. We did not go in so cant comment on that but we visited when the sun was... More

This mosque has a large and impressive collection of historic Korans. The Uthman Koran is considered by Sunni Moslems to be the oldest Koran in the world. (Shiite Muslims disagree on this.) It was written on deerskin 19 years after Mohammed's death.

I suppose it is somewhat incorrect to list this as a tourist attractionin its own right. True, the square (Khast Imom Square) where the mosque is located hosts another very famous and far more majestic mosque (Hazroti Imom Jummah masjid) along with the famous Kulkedash Madrassa, but this is a functional mosque first and foremost. The timing of my visit... More

Great area to walk around, near lots of other parkland. Can be bit warm on sunny day. If you've never been to a macro mosque good one to start with. Great photo opportunities.

We went here with a really nice guide. It adds value. You hear the story on the spot and get a sense for the place if you bring a guide. Here you can see one of 4 of the old Koran's (big I believe around 35 kg and on silk paper and a nice story about blood and power), the... More

Come to see this mosque as part of the Khast-Imam complex. This mosque is set in what once was the old city of Tashkent. You do not get the sense that you are in an acient place, but there is great crafts shopping to do behind this mosque.
