Lovely mosque in the heart of Beijing. Quiet in the hutong neighborhood. It has more than 300 hundred years history but newly restored. Beautifully built.

Small mosque hidden in the maze of hutongs
Nov 2016 • Solo
As a native Beijing resident. This is one of my favorite mosques in Beijing. It's so quiet, hidden in hutongs. Not easy to find but worth to visit. In its courtyard, you have a tasty the frozen time and history. The mosque is also located in the old part of town with hutong residents. On Friday Jumahs, the most number of people is around 50. So apparently it's a small mosque and nothing like the typical mosque in the West Asia countries. Also, most mosque goers are the elderlies. So I recommend you, muslims or non-Muslim tourists, go visit and take photos, keep this historical mosque alive. It's a lovely gem hidden in the maze, waiting for you.

An old mosque with touches of Chinese architecture
Oct 2015
It's unlike the mosques you see in middle eastern countries. Like others in China, this mosque has touches of Chinese architecture and if it were not for some Arabic Quranic verses, one might mistake it for an average Chinese building.

The mosque is not easy to find being located inside a hutong called Chaer Hutong. When you get to Liulichang, it is best to ask the locals for directions. Taking a picture of the building is not easy, taking a GOOD picture is not even possible, as the hutong is narrow, maybe about 2 metres wide, before you hit the wall of the building facing the mosque.

I asked for permission to take some photos of the interior but certain areas were out of bounds to non Muslims.

The mosque was deserted when I was there on the morning of 18 October 2015, and the only person I saw was the old man whom I asked for permission to take photos. A very friendly man he was.
