Juma Madrassah & Mosque

Andijan, Uzbekistan

Andijan’s chief religious complex was built near the bazaar at the end of the 19th century. Extensive restoration followed the 1902 earthquake in order for a Literature museum to be established. Vaulted halls span the corners of a monumental fagade almost 123 metres long. In the centre rises a traditional Ferghana portal crowned by ornamented minarets. From its roof, visitors (9am-4pm) can view the stalled Saudi plans, the inner courtyard, and the mosque’s minaret and vast summer iwan. The mosque is accessible via the side road past the madrassah and behind the adjacent regional museum of local studies.
