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

This is most like a park rather than a mosque! The end of the park/mosque is the prayer room which you are not allowed to enter.

We walked through the labyrinth of the Muslim Quarter market (excellent!) to the enter into calm and peacefulness of the Mosque. We loved the untouched feel of the building and grounds, like going back in time. One of our favorite stops in Xi'an.

This mosque is open to the public and worth a visit. The architecture is Asian blended with traditional mosque layout. The grounds are tranquil, despite the bustling marketplace nearby. You will feel transported to another place and time. I took some lovely photos here. I recommend it for a brief but lovely visit.

A unique Mosque in the fact that it is totally unlike any other Mosque that we have visited. 100% Chinese in construction but devoted to the worship and tenets of Islam. Here you have the unique blend of two very different cultures.

For 25 yuan, most of this Mosque is open to a tour. The old courtyards and side buildings are quite beautiful, and a little guide book that comes with the entrance fee gives a good description of the features. There are several signs in English as well. The evening prayer inside was telecast to visitors outside, which we found to... More

The naming of this place in Tripadvisor as simply as "Xi'an Mosque" can be misleading especially when we actually came to Xi'an. There are many old mosques at Muslim Quarter, although people might correctly guessing that you're referring to "The Great Mosque of Xi'an" Being the oldest mosque in China (founded at 742 by the time of Tang Dynasty, but...

The building, surrounding and interior is so historical i was awed. As if it was built as it is. A small entrance fee and the mosque is still being used so visiting time should not clash with prayers time to avoid interfering.

This is an usual mosque the blends two cultures. The architecture is very interesting and the turquoise tile roofs. Situated in the middle of the Muslim Quarter it is easy to find and takes no more than 1/2 hour
