GoMap online navigation system has developed a map and database of mosques located in Azerbaijan.

The map, which was created for the website of the Caucasian Muslims Office, shows the exact addresses of the mosques officially registered and operating in Azerbaijan.

The interactive map is available on “Mosques” section on the CMO official website (www.qafqazislam.com). Trend.Az reported.

The system of buses and subways close to these mosques is also available on the map. The link is designed for smartphones that support Android and iOS operating systems. Soon, it will also be available for Windows operating systems.

Azerbaijan enjoys a tolerant atmosphere for different nations and religions. The national policy is defined on the principles of tolerance and coexistence of various nationalities, ethnic groups and religious minorities.

Many religious confessions co-exist there. There are 1,834 mosques, 12 churches and 6 synagogues functioning in Azerbaijan. The government has created all conditions for religious worship in the country.
