UNESCO - Historic And Architectural Complex Of The Kazan Kremlin, Russia



This magnificant building is the Kul Sharif or Qolşärif Mosque in Kazan, originally built in the Kazan Kremlin in the 16th century but soon destroyed by Ivan The Terrible in 1552. Since 1996 the mosque has been rebuilt and can accommodate 6000 worshipers. The main minarets are 57 meters high.
Kazan is the capital and largest city of the Republic of Tatarstan in west Russia - its metropolitan area has a population of 1.6 million. This multi-ethnic city is famous for Muslims and Christians living side-by-side in peace. The Kazan Kremlin is its chief historic citadel built on behest of Ivan the Terrible on the ruins of the former castle of Kazan khans.
