The call to morning pray and life in general are on great display. Watching people moe in and out of the mosque, pray and just live is a great example of muslim life in china.

A good opportunity to observe the way of life in Kashgar. You see men praying in the mosque, and more than that, in the big public square just right outside it, you see families, teens and old folks hanging out, taking pictures, playing with pigeons, waiting for people... Great for photography and people-watching. There's also a handicraft street beside the... More

Seeing a couple mosque's before, this one is not special. The interior is not featuring a lot besides the nice garden and prayer hall. The spiritual experience is great.

The Id Kah mosque is, to my undiscerning eye, not very distinctive, a poor cousin to the mosques in Samarkand and Bokhara. What really caught my eye was the meticulous cleaning being done by women in the main prayer hall - the same women who are not allowed to pray there!

Really cool mosque in the middle of town that has a nice open feel. You will need to wait until times between prayer times to enjoy the mosque.

This mosque is the most famous in Kashgar and is worth seeing. It is not a spectacular mosque in global terms, but it is a key part of the Uighur culture and heritage in the city.

The mosque itself has a long and changing history. Entry is Y20 and a booklet with some information is available for Y10. Prayer sessions happen 5 times per day and a good time to be there is immediately following one of these. More interesting are the small streets surrounding the mosque. Lots to see there.
