Dating back to the Ming period, this mosque features inner courtyards that bear more of a resemblance to a Chinese temple.

It was interesting to see the Muslim culture flourish for so many years in China. The mosque is a quiet area in an otherwise bustling area of the muslim quarter. Very nice

Absolutely breathtaking and beautiful atmosphere. Very interesting to see the how Islam and old Chinese Culture meet. Very interesting history and a hidden little gem. Right off the food street and obviously the little ally leading to the mosque has vendors hoping to sell to tourists

Where is unique in Xi'an? Bell tower and Mosque. The Mosque is characterized with Chinese architecture style and full of mystery. Only moslim believers have right to enter the pray hall. This Mosque decorated with some beautiful brick craft. Three stone tablets wrote the greetings in different languages, persian, chinese and arabian, from a queen of Qing Dynasty. Don't hesitate...

Very different form what one expects at a mosque- from the very Chinese architecture to the relaxed atmosphere that allows you to take in this ancient but still functioning mosque. Can stroll through it and take pictures without any problem- good to have a guide that knows about the structure and its rich history. Approach it through the market, which... More

This is worth a visit, especially with a good tour guide. A lot of history here, and it is still an active, functional mosque

This is China, everyone goes and visit the same place. But when they are not interested you've got the whole place for yourself. A very mystical place, very quite and tranquil in the middle of the busy Muslim quarter. Not expensive, no tourists, only worshippers. Cool. Please do take time to rate my review, if you like it. Also, if... More

I visited with a group of friends, one of whom was Muslim. He said it was one of the most unique mosques he had seen anywhere in the world. It was a peaceful place to spend half an hour looking at the beautiful buildings and meeting friendly locals. It was definitely worth popping in, especially if you've just experienced the... More

It is a little hidden in the hustle and bustle of the Muslim quarter, but it is a great place to find. A beautiful and tranquil mosque with Chinese design and architecture. I've been to many mosques in the world, and this one is truly unique.

It is located off Muslin street and interesting to see as I think it was free to visit. The garden area before the Mosque was nice. If your in the area you can at least visit.
