Dozens of mosques, religious temples, historical monuments and sanctuaries were built, restored or reconstructed on the initiative and instructions of the head of our state in the capital and regions of the country. The Heydar Aliyev Foundation has also made considerable contribution to works in this direction.

The overhaul and reconstruction of the Juma Mosque in Narimanov district also testifies to the consistent character of the work carried out in our country on the preservation of national and spiritual values.
