Nurulla Mosque (Sennaya Mosque)

Location: Kazan, Moskovskaya Str. 74

The mosque was built in 1849 by the architect A.I.Peske, and for many years was the most important Muslim religious building in Kazan (the minaret was destroyed in the Soviet time). In the words of the architect N.Khalitov, the significance of its appearance in the district of the ancient Kuraish settlement, wherein the times of the Kazan Khans the famous Utyz (Otuch) mosque stood, was underlined by the symbolic use of the forms of the Dzhami minaret, thus symbolically transported from the city of Bulgar to the central square of Tatar Kazan.
