Hawzah News Agency - (Cambridge - UK) - The President of Turkey will be visiting the official opening of Cambridge Mosque today (December 5).

Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's is expected to arrive at Mill Road in the early afternoon.

Mill Road and surrounding routes will be closed all day due to the inauguration between 9 am and 6pm, says Cambridgeshire police.

To commemorate the official opening of Cambridge's eco-mosque we have republished our gallery of pictures inside the stunning building.

Cambridge  Central Mosque has space for around 1,000 Islamic worshippers.

Costing around £23 million, the mosque includes features that will minimise carbon emissions - which the Cambridge Mosque Trust hoped to emphasise the role of faith in promoting "responsible management of the earth's resources".

As well as other eco-friendly strategies and being well insulated, the mosque is heated and cooled using locally generated energy.

Rainwater will be harvested and used to flush the toilets and irrigate the grounds.

The project aims to enhance the welfare of the city's estimated 6,000 Muslim population, including many visiting students - as well as the wider community.

The Cambridge Mosque trust said it would "not follow or expect adherence to any particular school of Islam and will welcome worshippers from every part of the Muslim family, of both genders."
