President Nazarbayev unveils new mosque in Astana

ASTANA. July 6. KAZINFORM President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev unveiled new Khazret Sultan Mosque on Friday (July 6) in Astana.

President Nazarbayev made public at the unveiling ceremony that the newly constructed place of worship could room up to 10 000 people.

"It is no coincidence that the new mosque is named after Khodzha Akhmet Yassaui. It is a well-known fact that there is the Khodzha Akhmet Yassaui mausoleum in Turkestan. From now own Astana will have its own 'Khazret Sultan'," the Kazakh leader said.

He also emphasized the new mosque was located in the Independence Avenue next to the Palace of Peace and Accord which was symbolical.
