The main Friday mosque of the city was built during the reign of Umarkhan and represented an extended closed on all three sides aivan. Khanaka was located in the centre of it. Aivan was held by 98 columns carved from wood, which among the people is called as "stone" due to its strength. The main entrance to the mosque was a minaret, laid out simple smooth brick masonry. The height of the minaret was 22 meters and its main decoration was considered to be six-arched lantern under a faceted dome. Daily, five times a day at the same time, the citizens were called to prayer from a height of that minaret.
