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

Interesting but if I had missed it I wouldn't have cared too much. The place is quite rundown, but it is free.

A nice quiet area in Xi'an. Very interesting mix of Muslim and Chinese traditions. A nice 30 quiet minutes. Take a map with you since this may be a little difficult to find in this busy area.

Xi'an mosque is a hidden touristic spot that is worth looking for if you are having a walk in the muslim neighbourhood. There are some posters showing the way to the mosque, but you don't see them easily among the shops, the crowd and the coloured streets. Asking the locals may be the best way to find it. The mosque... More

You need to pay ticket if you'd like to visit this monument. Unless if you are Muslim. Very nice and serene place. This Grand Mosque is like a Chinese temple. It is not like normal structures. Very good to pay a visit to this place. This Grand Mosque is located inside the Muslim Quarter in xi'an.

Not what you normally expect from a mosque. Architecturally this has much more in common with other Chinese temples, and to the uninitiated it is only the odd piece of Arabic inscription that gives away that this is in fact a mosque. However the very fact of its existence underlines the importance of Xi'an as the beginning (or end?) of... More

Located in the midst of Xi'an's Muslim Quarter, this mosque - one of East Asia's oldest - offers a moment of serenity and peace. The well-kept gardens and aged inscriptions offer something for even the novice guest. As with all mosques, non-Muslims are not admitted into the prayer hall. However, the open air nature of this mosque allows even outsiders... More

A interesting mosque. It was once a Buddhist temple. Not far from the drum tower. Go north on Moslem street and down the narrow alley to the left. You will go by lots of market stalls.

In Muslim quarter near market, this makes a great oasis to explore and reflect in a quiet area. A pretty area to gather thoughts about religion in general in China.

If you've spent the day battling the crowds at the Terracotta Warriors pits, or at any of the more popular museums in Xi'an--or pushing past all the eager sightseers in the Muslim Quarters, for that matter--the Great Mosque is the perfect antidote. Along with the Guangren Lama Temple (also highly recommended), the Great Mosque is one of the least crowded... More
