“Beautiful mosque in the middle of the tow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

Walking around the Muslim district you will easily find this nice and peaceful mosque. We were lucky to casually meet a guy who show us inside and explain us mainly the mosque ambient. Even if you have to pay a fee to enter inside, it represent a good and worthy escape from the crowded and noisy streets of the Muslim quarter.

Feels like you've stepped back in time. As you leave the chaos of the Xi'an streets you can feel the peacefulness engulf you!!

“The good surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

Walking around the streets of the Muslim district, I was somehow disappointed by the Disneyland feeling, every shop is turned into a souvenir boutique, every restaurant serving the same overpriced noodles. Except the names above the restaurants, no real Muslim atmosphere anymore.
Wandering around, looking for smaller side streets, I got to the Mosque. Ok, I had to pay to enter and escape the frenesy of this district, but how worth it was! It is a little piece of paradise in the middle of a crazy crowd.

Do not miss it!

“Unexpected tranquility”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

You approach the Mosque through a narrow bustling street market and pass through an archway into a large very tranquil courtyard which combines typical Chinese architecture with arabic script. Both the street market and the Mosque are worth a visit.
