Religious, Spiritual sights in Ashgabat

More a statement of foreign-policy leanings than a sign of religious awakening, the Azadi mosque stands just south of Magtymguly şayoli, 600m east of the junction with Turkmenbashi. Similar in appearance to the Blue Mosque in İstanbul, the mosque sees few worshippers because of several accidental deaths during its construction.
The angular, futuristic Iranian mosque, illuminated with green neon, is on Görogly köçesi on the western outskirts of the city on the way to Nissa.
