Kruszyniany. Green Mosque.

The wooden structure from the eighteenth century, built by local carpenters and joiners, who mapped the appearance of the local Orthodox and Catholic churches.

 

Only green color refers to Islam, because, for example, dome of towers are Byzantine.

 

To this day, in the mosque are celebrated prayer in Arabic.

 

Because the local Tatars lost the ability of this language - in the sacred books are footnotes in Belarusian and Polish.

 

Kruszyniany residents celebrate not only all Muslim holidays.

They are happy to join to celebrate with their neighbors the Orthodox holidays and Catholic celebrations.

 

For this reason, local children have in school more free days than anywhere else in Poland.

It exists already 300 years. At the oldest tombstones from the seventeenth century - the time faded all inscriptions.

 

First read inscriptions come from 1704.

According to tradition, a larger stone was placed at the head, lower at the foot of the deceased.

 

In old times, the most popular ceremony in the village was an Islamic funeral, where according to tradition handed out candy. The ceremony was attended then by all the residents.

 

If not from a desire to honor the memory of the deceased, then certainly because of gluttony.

Bohoniki. Muslim cemetery.

2 hectares, the largest existing in Poland mizar was founded in the eighteenth century. The oldest preserved tombstone with a clear inscription dates from 1786.

 

Most of the inscriptions from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries is in Arabic and Russian, because of the suppression on the use of Polish under Russian rule.

 

All graves are facing east and their right edges are facing the right side in the direction of Mecca - because it is believed that the soul leaves the body from the right side.
