After crossing Ossetian-Ingush border I was stopped at the check-point on the very top of Terskiy Range near the Vosnesenskaya Village for severe inspection of my bike, luggage and passport. When the policemen make sure that I have no extremist literature, they offered me a cup of tea and let me go.
After a steep descent from the range I approached to the crossroad where my road Mozdok – Vladikavkaz was crossed with the road Malgobek – Grozniy. There was a new village, which had not be plotted in my old map. This was Zyazikov-Yurt, apparently named after Murat Zyazikov, ex-president of Ingushetia, who did a lot for refugees from Chechnya. I believe this village is a former refugee camp.
In the picture you see the mosque of Zyazikov-Yurt Village in Malgobek’s Rayon of the Republic of Ingushetiya.

Your photo has captured the beautiful architecture of this mosque, and its rich colours, with excellent clarity. Interesting note.

An excellent picture of the modern mosque and an interesting note. The brown walls and the golden domes are attractively matched by the tree and the grass. The minaret and dome have a perfect background in the lightly cloded sky.

A very impressive shot. I like the bright orange red color of the mosque with golden dome. The tall tower with windows looks like reaching the sky. It has beautiful architectural details. Lovely metal fence around it. Informative text to go with it. Well composed with sharpness and colors.

Ciao dear Sergiy,
you are the best photographer of the Orthodox Churches, but here you prove to be also an excellent photographer of Mosques! Simply perfect! Thank you for this interesting reportage from Ingushetiya, a land not very well known in western Europe, but certainly suggestive and interesting. I will be happy to see your next images of your trip. Congratulations!
ciao, have a nice day!

I did not see many mosques in life because they live in a predominantly Orthodox Serbia.
But this is a beautiful architektura.
Fin text follows the work.
Image quality and composition are perfect.
Best regards my friend

very charming mosque. I like the original colors.
Very nice postcard-like presentation. I created a theme "modern mosques in Europe" but honestly speaking I was not sure if this place is in Europe or not as the border with Asia is probably very close and I am not sure how does it exactly go.
Congratulations on presenting a completely new place here. I know the feeling, there is something incredible about it.
Very well done,

the refugee camp and the beautiful mosque ?
Many thanks for your sharing
adramad (40722) 2011-08-04 9:21
An excellent composition with the image of the new mosque, draws attention to its high minaret that you captured in a perfectly vertical, the attractive color of the building with the brick red and gold of the domes contrasts with the soft color of the sky.
An image with lots of harmony, with the added value of the little known of these republics and thanks to you know something.
Good sharpness and optimum brightness.
Have a nice evening.
macjake (61590) 2011-08-04 9:23
its great that you have put this Ingushetiya on the map of TE! :)
i'm sure they're proud :)
interesting story about how you were treated at the border inspection! that adds so much to the photo, as it creates an ever lasting memory.
shown in the Russian style, the mosque has alot of history, despite its new age.
interesting too, that this may have been an old refugee camp.

Good choice of pov and very well composed, a beautiful mosque with interesting architecture, lovely colors,
excellent light management, very good clarity, sharpness and contrast.
The golden dome is the most attractive element that makes this image. Great work, congrats

jmdias (59016) 2011-11-12 16:23
very beautiful the colors of this mosque and the contrast of them with the place around, I can be wrong but I guess these brilliant domes are an influenc of the orthodox architecture..nice job.
sacimar (26205) 2011-11-30 10:22
this is an impressive building, I like the golden domes, they are eye-catching, the contrast with the cloudy sky is good, well done,
