The mosque is very beautiful from the outside. I cannot talk about the inside since I didn't want to pay to go inside. They state that the fee is keep the mosque in shape, which I believe, but there is so much else to see, that the other options won out.

Id Kah Mosque (masjid) is located close to the old city and it represents a nice Uighur architecture and Islamic style architecture. The mosque was built 1442 AD and extended this size in end of 18th century , the mosque listed as the largest mosque in China ,

Located in the "Old Town" area of Kashi. The mosque was first built in 1442 and the present mosque is in good order, although nothing spectacular. It has no real minarets and there is no "call to Prayer" as China whilst it tolerates Muslims and mosques it does not encourage either. We are led to believe that the whole area... More

Nothing really spectacular. History is interesting and the architecture is worth a look, but don't expect to be excited.The small roads around, the night market opposite and the great place in front are the interesting part. Sit down, take time and watch the people.

The Id Kah is the biggest Mosque, as I understand it, in China. Probably not surprising for a country that isn't predominantly Muslim, and given that it isn't surprising that it is located in Kashgar, a major Muslim city on the old Silk Road. It is very much worth the effort to walk around and appreciate the space itself. We... More

This is one of the main sites in Kashgar and is well presented and managed. Easy to navigate and a pleasant place to sit and relax. Large hanging rugs and prayer room give this place a character all of its own

Well, the part that you can see from outside, which is the yellow tiles entrance is from far the best thing about this place. You get in and there is a garden and at the back of it up a few stairs, there is a building. You can go in after you take off your shoes and it is a... More

Superb. Not as impressive as mosques in middle east but still impressive. Make sure you have the approriate dress and avoid visiting during the prayertime
