- The Akhmad Kadyrov Mosque
The mosque, officially known as the “Heart of Chechnya”, was built based on the classical Ottoman style with a set of 62-metre tall minarets. Modelled after other famous mosques (al-Kubbat Sahra in Jerusalem, Rovzat-Nebevi in Medina, and the Kaaba shrine in Mecca) are the 36 chandeliers in the mosque. The dome appears to float atop four supporting columns. The seemingly airy lightness adds to its beauty.
Meaning ‘Abode of Divinity,’ it is one of 218 cultural heritage sites in Chechnya located in the historic district of Malkhista, ‘Land of the Sun.’ Everyone buried in this place dubbed the “city of the dead” was considered equal to a deity. A place shrouded with mysticism with its crypts. It is not for the faint of heart.
