Land for the construction has been allocated few years ago. It is an area opposite to the building of the State Research Institute of safety works in the mining industry, next to which is located a Muslim house of worship. The construction will be sponsored by the donations from local Muslims.

According to the author of the project, the chief architect of the city Valery Sidorchuk, several models of the future mosque were considered, including the Byzantine and Iranian styles of architecture. "And after considering all we have chosen the classical variant. It will be a mosque with one minaret. There will be two halls for prayers (for women and for men) as well as room for ablution on the ground floor. One large hall for Friday prayers will be located on the second floor and it will accommodate 400 people" he added.
