Lonely Planet review for Juma Mosque
Kokand's most impressive mosque, built in the early 19th century, is centred on a 22m minaret and includes a huge, colourful aivan (arched portico) supported by 98 red-wood columns brought from India. Ten more columns are in the mosque itself. The entire complex has reverted to its former Soviet guise as a museum , with one room housing a collection of suzani and ceramics from the region. Admission includes a free tour in Russian.
