Friday Mosque (Jami)
At the beginning of the 19C, when it was being built, the Friday Mosque was one of the largest in the Fergana Valley. Its wooden ceiling with polychrome decorations is supported by a hundred or so elaborately carved wooden poles. A veritable forest of fine wood imported from India by trade caravans. Their capitals are painted in the traditional colours of the valley while the ceiling and pillars are engraved with geometrical motifs and tracery. A feast for the eyes!
