See an unusual place of worship at Dungan Mosque, which features a construction style more like that of a Chinese Buddhist temple than Islamic mosque of Kyrgyzstan. Constructed over 100 years ago by a Chinese master who wanted to give the Muslim population a place to pray, the structure was built utilizing bricks and wood held together with no nails, and furnished with ornate decorative carvings and a curved, undulating roof. The last of eight mosques that once stood around the town, the site offers a rare opportunity to see a distinctive place of worship, unlike any found elsewhere in Karakol.

A one of a kind mosque with great history and cultural relevance. Small fee to enter but u just pay that to the donation box - it's all for the sake of maintenance. Well worth it in my opinion if you are in the area.The Chinese architectural elements mashed with Muslim character make it all the more interesting
