The Eiffel Tower in Paris, The Colosseum in Rome, The Pyramids in Egypt, etc.. and The Kul Sharif .. now you have seen it all ! The most remarkable Tatar mosque with amazing acoustics. Amazing during the daylight, and breathtaking in the night.

Entry is free to this beautiful mosque. As expected women need to have their head covered. Photos with no flash are allowed. You can go up stairs at either side to look down from the gallery. The windows and structure are stunning.
