Huge Mosque for Moscow

The cathedral mosque that was demolished in September is to be replaced with one of the largest mosques in Europe.

The new massive white and green mosque will have an area of 300,000 square meters and hold 5,000 believers, with space for a further 15,000-18,000 worshipers on its grounds. The mosque is to reach a height of 75 meters.

The Mosque is to be equipped with climate control, an elevator, and even video broadcasting facilities. Plans call for the building to be finished by 2014, Komsomolskaya Pravda reported on Thursday, citing the press secretary for the Mufti Council of Russia.
