Mosque (Mechet) Review

Built between 1910 and 1914, the city's center of Muslim worship is designed after the Gur Emir in Samarkand (in modern-day Uzbekistan), where Tamerlane, the 14th-century conqueror, is buried. The huge dome is flanked by two soaring minarets and covered with sky-blue ceramics, and the inside columns, which support the arches under the dome, are faced with green marble.
