The Thousandth Anniversary of Islam Mosque

The Thousandth Anniversary of Islam Mosque or The Anniversary Mosque was built in Kazan, Tatarstan, Russia to commemorate the thousandth anniversary of the Islamization of the Volga Bulgars in 922.

The alternative name of the mosque, and the most commonly used name, is The Mosque Across the Qaban, because most of Kazan's mosques are situated on the other side of the Qaban, where the Tatar community was traditionally located before the October Revolution. The part where the mosque was situated was inhabited predominantly by the Russian community.HistoryBased on a design by Pechnikov from 1914
