Thank you, I asked because sometimes you are not allowed into a Mosque because of Friday prayers. The photos of this Mosque look stunning. Hope it is easy to find.

In fact most Mosques in China is generally off limits to non-muslim in northwest China. In modern big cities situation is little better. In south China, people are much more open.

The mosque was my favourite thing in Xi'an. It's beautiful. Not that easy to find - we walked past it at first!
