Probably the biggest masjid in Kazakhstan. Especially liked summer camp organized for kids. There were classes both for boys and girls. They learn basics of religion, Arabic and Qur'an. Quite a lot people came for taraweeh prayer in Ramadan.

Perfect place, the security guard have seen that we are tourists, he took us inside and was very polite. I recommend to visit it during the day, before they start to pray.

Very beautiful place. Super clean inside. You can read books about islam and get a knowledge. Stuff are kind, always help to visitors. Also they do have special classes of arabic language for free. For women there are special long all cover dresses in the case that you are not in it at that moment. I recommend to everyone to visit this place.

Females must wear long pants. Chador at the door is provided for females to cover yourself over your clothing. Shoes must be removed at the door. Photos are allowed. Please keep silence and avoid walking in front of anyone praying towards Mecca.

Mosques are not many in Astana... So every mosque is precious... Especially if it is the largest.... On Friday pray, it gets so full that many can pray only in the open no matter how low is temperature out there... The mosque is full of social activities during the whole week... The serve local foods also and you can buy zamzam water too... They have Hijama and hair cut as well... Kazakh and visiting moslems find there peace of mind, bond with each other and a place to perform their daily prayers... I found that too...
