This historic mosque was originally built in 1823 in the Zamoskvorechye district which was formerly a Tatar settlement – and the land was owned by a Tatar merchant. The mosque was designed to blend in with the other homes in the area and was known as a ‘Muslim house of prayer’ but not a mosque, based on the orders from the authorities at the time.

The construction of The Memorial Mosque took place from 1995 1997 at Poklonnaya Hill in Moscow to commemorate the Islamic soldiers who gave their lives for the Great Patriotic War that lasted from 1941 to 1945. The mosque is well recognised for interesting architecture that has been influenced by Caucasian, Tartar and Uzbek styles.
As one of the uniquely beautiful masjids in Moscow, the building stands out with its grand square-shaped entranced with ornate carvings and one tall minaret. With square, dark grey domes on the minaret, the main dome is unique with ridges that standouts with the orange and brown exterior. The interior prayer hall is unique too, with white pillars, balconies and a domed ceiling that are all carved with intricate designs.
