The restoration of religious monuments and mosques in Karabakh and the construction of new mosques are underway. The Zangilan mosque, the foundation stone for restoration of which was laid down with the participation of President Ilham Aliyev, first Lady Mehriban Aliyeva and their daughter Leyla Aliyeva on Aril 26, 2021, has an exceptional significance.
It should be noted that during the three decades of Armenia occupation of Azerbaijani lands our historical, religious and cultural monuments in the Zangilan district, as well as on the territory of other districts of Azerbaijan, were subjected to Armenian vandalism, were destroyed and exposed. During the occupation the mosque in the city of Zangilan was also used as a slaughterhouse for cattle.
Currently, the restoration of the Zangilan Mosque is carried out by the Heydar Aliyev Foundation with the support of the Pasha Holding LLC.
