Once was one of the four most-famous mosques in Beijing. But now is very quiet, only a few people go and pray. Newly restored, beautiful interior with typical decorations for mosque in China.

Glad that the mosque is located in the city. However, it seems like it's not well maintained. The toilets (women) are bad (dirty). However the prayer hall is good. No fan or air-cond, but it really good and kinda cold inside.
