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.

Loved the place. I liked the mixture between the Buddhists temples and Islamic culture.
