Turkey's Religious Affairs Ministry is working to complete what will be the biggest mosque in Central Asia, in the capital city of Kyrgyzstan, Bishkek.

Work on the 70 meter-high mosque began in March 2012, and is now approaching completion. Built on a land of 5 acres, the mosque covers a space of 1,300 square meters and will have four minarets, two of which are almost finished.

The mosque will also cater for a mufti's office, an ablution area and a car park for 800 cars.

It is expected to be complete by 2015.
