Europe’s largest mosque to open tomorrow in Moscow [AN]

Putin will lead the dedication ceremony of the capital’s new Muslim landmark in the presence of foreign leaders like Erdogan and Abbas. The building has a golden dome higher than that of St Peter’s Basilica and can accommodate up to 10,000 people.


I did not realize there were so many Muslims in Moscow. I have never heard a mosque referred to as a Cathedral Mosque just as I have never heard of a Cathedral Synagogue or a Cathedral Temple before.
