“Beautiful mosque, very important cultural center”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

We visited this mosque during Ramadan, and it was amazing seeing the area surrounding the mosque at sundown, when there is a free feast for those breaking fast. The mosque is beautiful, and the surrounding square has lots of photo booths set up where visitors can have their pictures taken (even with various animals) in front of this major landmark. My kids LOVED the camels, horses and sheep, as well as the pigeons that you could feed right from your hand. We visited the mosque and the square several times during our stay in Kashgar and would go back again if we ever make it back that way.

“A good reminder of local religion, history and culture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

in contrary of the old city centre's who are to be destroyed under rule of the Chinese Govt, this Mosque will remind people of the ancient traditions of the local people. I simply cannot understand why they destroy the old centre saying thet those houses became dangerous for earthquakes and flood when they wher not for hundreds of years. Even in Beijing they finaly had to admit that the old Hutongs where a part of the important curltural herritance. Kashgar will change into another typical Chinese city and loose all of his charm.
