The distinguished guest was informed about the history of the construction of mosques and mausoleums located on the territory of the complex, the Quran of Uthman stored here, and the history of its appearance in the country.

Information was provided about the work carried out in the religious and enlightenment sphere, the conditions created for freedom of religion, and the practice of religious traditions and rituals.
