Karakol town is situated near the eastern end of Issyk-Kul lake at the altitude of 1,770m. It is a very small but beautiful town with thousands of poplars. It would be interesting to see the Russian Orthodox Church, completed in 1895, used as an officer’s club during Soviet times; very pretty wooden mosque built by Chinese artisans for the local Dungans between 1907 and 1910 entirely without metal nails, a museum, parks, an oriental bazaar and the biggest Animal Market in Karakol Karakol is one of Kyrgyzstan’s major tourist destinations, serving as a good starting point for the excellent hiking, trekking, skiing and mountaineering in the high central Tian Shan to the south and east.
The Russian Orthodox Cathedral built originally of stone in 1872, replaced the new towns first Christian place of worship, a jurt. Destroyed by an earthquake in 1890, a new cathedral was completed in 1895, of wood on a brick base. The ravages of communist secularism stripped the cathedral of its domes. Rebuilding was completed in the early 1990s for deconsecrating in 1991 and 1997.
Dungan Mosque – distinctly Chinese building looks bizarrely out of place in Karakol. It is a masterpiece of Dungan architecture, featuring a carved frieze of fine workmanship. Inside its imagery is an eclectic mix, testament to the Dungans pre-Islamic Buddhist past, combining a pomegranate with Buddhist imagery such as the shell and wheel of fire. Completed in 1910 it was built entirely without nails using an uncommon grey-blue brick. Instead of a minaret, the mosque has a wooden pagoda.
