Dungan mosque – the important site of the tour

The famous Dungan Mosque in Kyrgyzstan, Karakol city, built in the style of a Chinese Buddhist temple, is one of the architectural monuments of the Dungan culture of the late 19th century. All the colors of the mosque also represent various Dungan cultural concepts, red - protects from evil spirits, yellow-promotes the accumulation of wealth and brings prosperity to the house, and green-represents happiness. You can reach the territory by our car rent service during tours.

The history of the Dungan Mosque in Karakol dates back to the late 19th and early 20th centuries. As a result of the uprising of 1877, about 300 thousand Dungans, crossing the dangerous passages of Torugart, fled from the punitive detachments of the Chinese. Many Dungans died in the snow, froze, and starved to death, but many of them reached the city of Karakol, where they were warmly received by representatives of the Russian and Kyrgyz peoples. Having settled in the city, the Dungans decided to build a mosque for themselves on the territory of Kyrgyzstan. Its construction was carried out for three years.

The most amazing thing about this mosque is that it is built without a single nail or any metal bundles. The builders used only wooden beams made of Tien Shan spruce, elm and local poplar. Walnut was also used in the decoration of the building. But before the construction, it was necessary to prepare all this, so Zhou-Si, a master of Donggang wooden architecture, who was about 40 years old at the time, was invited from Beijing (China). He worked with 20 masters who came from China. The foundations and stone work were done by local craftsmen, and all the woodwork was done by Chinese. Zhou-si drew ornaments on the tree, which were immediately carved by his assistants. In accordance with the project, every detail was thought out, every detail was provided for. Parts of the future building were prepared for about 3 years. Within 3 months, all the parts were assembled and the building was built. The construction of the mosque was completed on May 10, 1910. It is served to our days, so we can enjoy the atmosphere today in tours along Kyrgyzstan. We would like to admit that our company also offers car rent service when having tours.
