Had some trouble finding the place, it's actually discreet in its entrance. At first we thought the building next door was the one! It's quiet, most of the buildings are inaccessible to visitors so it'll take nothing more than quarter hour to look around. But worth a visit if you're in the area anyway, some great food on offer down... More

There is both a modern mosque and the original (late 17th century) one alongside it, built for the Hui Muslim minority people who came from Xinjiang during the reign of Emperor Kangxi.

You can enter the mosque but not enter the prayer hall. It's very clean and quiet. Beautifully restored. It is the oldest mosque of the city and at the beginning of hui minority district.

It really did not look like a mosque! The design of the buildings along with the calligraphy on the sides of the buildings gave it a truly unique feel. Quaint courtyards and a quiet atmosphere.

The buildings looked different than the others around them. Other than that, just a bunch of shops selling stuff just like any other market. If you have never seen domed buildings, then kind of neat to see. If you have, then no need to go by this area of town.

Loved the artistic design of WangYueLou, the worship chamber, and the garden. The courtyard was very neat and the drawing on the building complex was one of the kind.

At first glance, it didn't look like a typical Mosque. The building had an interesting mix of Buddist and Islamic elements. Definitely one of the sights not to miss in Hohot. I remember that a wedding was held on the day I visited!

Hohhot has many Mosque's. This is one of my favourite. The architecture and colours is really amazing. It's not very big, but its free which is always nice.
