Photographer's Note

After posting photos of an Orthodox church and Buddhists temple, I would like to post this photo of a Muslim mosque from the aul of Uchkulan, Karachayevskiy District of Karachay-Cherkessiya, where two rivers, Ullukam and Uchkulan merge together making the Kuban River.

When I was in Uchkulan two years ago, there was not this mosque yet. Now its construction is fully completed, only some landscape design around is needed. The mosque is situated in a park where some sculptures or empty pedestals of Soviet era remain. I believe that nicely shaped stones, which I saw on the Kuban River’s bank near the aul, could be used for making something like a rock garden around the new mosque.
