Kul Sharif Mosque
📍 Russia
The Kul Sharif Mosque, a crown jewel of Kazan, Russia, stands in the Kazan Kremlin, blending Islamic architecture with Tartar heritage. It's not just a place of worship but also a symbol of peace and revival, named after a hero killed defending Kazan from Ivan the Terrible in 1552. The mosque was reconstructed in 2005, now featuring a museum of Islam on its premises. Photographers will find its stunning exterior, adorned with blue and white tiles, and its spacious, light-filled interior, under a large central dome, particularly captivating during sunrise and sunset. Its position offers striking views of the Volga River and the surrounding Kremlin walls, providing a perfect backdrop for capturing the essence of Kazan’s rich history and cultural diversity. For the best shots, explore different angles from the Kremlin's grounds.
