This mosque is in the middle of Xi'an's Muslim section and well worth a visit, unlike any mosque you are likely to visit elsewhere this is very much influenced by chinese culture.

Our group was walked through the shopping area to the Mosque and then back through the shopping area on the way out. We wished more time had been allocated so we could explore some of the shops which were part of a delightful part of the city.

Liked this Mosque- although I much enjoyed the Muslim district more. It is quiet and peaceful, and a nice place to stroll amongst the street. It is in walking distance of the drum tower. None of these sights (just about all of China is not suitable) are suitable for people in a wheel chair or with mobility issues. Would recommend... More

Right off one of the alleyways of the market this mosque offers a bit of quiet an relaxation after a busy day of the terra cotta warriors, the wall, and the market. The chinese architecture was quite interesting and a much different twist to what you see for most mosques. The grounds are lovely and quiet in stark contrast to... More

I'm really really glad that we found time to visit the Mosque. The entrance costs 25 CNY and the place is worth it. As for the architecture, it's not much different from Buddist temples there, but the atmosphere was much more pleasant - peaceful and quiet. The mosque is a bit hidden if you're walking the main streets, easier to... More

after so many "new" old buildings in China, it is a pleasure to see this real antique area. It is a must to go there. It is impressing how the islamic history even spreaded so deep into China. The buildings form a protection from the city life outside and its a real rest to be inside. If you have ever... More

I have visited many mosques while traveling however, this one had a very different feeling. The Chinese architecture is very interesting. It was peaceful to wader around the grounds and look at the buildings away from the clouds outside.

Enjoyed walking there and seeing all the street stalls. The mosque has some nice features but could be missed if pushed for time. Otherwise well worth the effort
