11 The Beauty Of Kazan

The Beauty Of Kazan

Posted on May 18, 2011 by kulichik

The Kazan Kremlin is a magnificent citadel of Tatarstan. It was built in the 16th century by the Russian Tsar (king)
Ivan the Terrible who defeated Tatar khans and became the ruler of the place.

The unique thing about the citadel is that Russian and Tatar memorials, orthodox Christian churches and Muslim mosques are located here in close vicinity.

It symbolizes that that the two peoples (Russians and Tatars) who used to fight against each other in the past are united in the present.

    The mosquee in the Kazan Kremlin is not old: in 1991, they dared destruct an ancient church and build at it’s place this absolutely ugly mosquee! Shame to those muslim fundamentalists!

  6. Henry says:

    The churches look historical but the mosque is modern and gaudy. Was it paid by the Iranian government?

    Incredible place! I was there last winter, in my blog you can read about my experiences there :D

  8. Fonte says:

    Muslims and Christians living alongside one another! Is it possible to be both? Can you go to Church service and then head over to the mosque and pray being that Allah and God are the same thing anyway?
