We visited the Mosque which was somewhat interesting due but I would recommend spending time elsewhere. The Muslim Street surrounding the mosque was more interesting with the various street vendors selling food and souvenirs.

We were at the mosque as people were leaving after their Friday prayers, so it was an interesting glimpse into a segment of Chinese culture about which we otherwise would have had no clue. The surrounding marketplace is also worth a visit.

We are not moslims,but we had a chance to visit the mosque in the moslim quarters during our visit,we found that it is a quite nice garden,which is very different from the traditional mosque in Arabic countries,worth to visit.

Very interesting to see an Asian-style mosque - the entire area was a maze of paths through tiny shops to get to the mosque. Nice garden area.

It was really interesting to see this mosque. The unique mix of chinese and arab decoration and arcitecture. I'm not religious, but found this complex both interesting and serene.

I once visit the mosque and it is soooo unique. There is market alongway to the mosque, and dont forget to bargain there (i am good at it). The area is good for moslem since there are alot of stall selling hallal food. Never missed to visit xian once you are in china. I really recommend it.

Could not see what the fuss is about (for a non-muslim). Some average-looking buildings, people going about their business. No memorable or picturesque places for a photo.

Who would have known there was a mosque hidden within the back streets of the Muslim market? The mosque is nestled around many souvenir shops so you may miss the entrance. This mosque has the traditional Chinese architecture so it blends well with the scenery. Pretty quiet here!
