An official opening of the renovated Orta Jami Mosque in Bakchisaray will take place soon. This mosque is an architectural monument of the XVIII century. The restoration works became possible thanks to financial contributions of Enver Umerov, and his sons Aslan and Rustem.
The restoration was initiated by Umerov’s family and Mufti of Crimean Muslims Emirali Ablayev. According to organizers, head of Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people Mustafa Dzhemilev is to speak at the opening of the monument, among others.
After the opening, there will be an opportunity to perform Namaz (Muslim prayer).
Note: Orta Jami is one of the oldest mosques in Crimea situated in the old town of Bakchisaray. It used to be the main Friday prayer mosque in the capital of Crimean Khanate. The mosque was in a bad condition, its minaret along with some other small surrounding buildings were completely destroyed until the end of 2012 when its reconstruction started. The reconstruction involved rebuilding of the minaret from scratch as well as some minor buildings previously located next to the mosque.
