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

We enjoyed having a look around here. Not many people when we came and it was very peaceful. Beautiful traditional buildings and nice garden. A piece of tranquility compared to the crowds just outside the entrance!

This is one of islamic treasures in China. Considering Xi'an as the starting point of the silk road, the great mosque of Xi'an was believed to be built in the Tang dynasty (618-907), developed and expanded through the Ming dynasty and the Qing dynasty. The mosque has no dome and minaret and surrounded by some Chinese architectural temples style combined... More

The main pray room and altar is the most beautiful place hundreds of years Allah has been worshipped in this place.and millions of people prayed there. Around the mosque an old Bazar will provide beautiful and... More

This is an oasis of calm in the Muslim Quarter, it's tucked down a back alley and worth a visit. Try and sneak in with an guide group if you can to avoid the overly expensive entrance fee!

This mosque is unique because it incorporates Chinese temple design into the mosque's architecture, art, and layout. The networks of courtyards and archways will be familiar to people that have visited Chinese temples, but its role as an active mosque and the Arabic calligraphy and artwork make it quite different from other temples. As has been mentioned, if you are... More

This is the most beautiful mosque I have ever visited and I've seen several in Africa, Asia and the middle East. It is located to a bazaar and many great restaurants. Be sure and try the dumplings.

I was expecting a normal mosque, with domes and minarets etc but I was pleasantly surprised to see Chinese architecture mosque completed with garden, courtyards and pagoda. The female prayer section was separated from the main mosque area and a bit difficult to find. It was in the alley next to the mosque. You need to ask for direction to... More
