Very interesting

Quite interesting to see such a beautiful mosque in Lhasa! Definitely recommend visiting. It's been there for a very long time and is an important gathering spot for local Muslims.

Did not enter but the exterior was very nice situated in the muslim end of the Barkhor. Traditional tibetan exterior. Did not hear any calls to prayer

Mosque area is interesting but no access to non-Muslims
Sep 2018 • Couples
You can see the top of the mosque from over the walls and the Muslim neighborhood it's in has many interesting little shops and groceries but you can't get in unless you're Muslim (at least, they wouldn't let us in).

Well worth a walk round, the Mosque is the centre of a fascinating enclave of mostly Muslim run shops and restaurants, offering great food. This also shows how well Buddhism and Islam can coexist in close proximity.

The door was open - so I went inside

I was passing by and saw that the door was open, so I popped in. The place was quiet. The building looks quite modern. out front of the mosque is a busy market area with lots of stall to choose from.

Nice enough Mosque and a lot of interesting things to learn but not a must. Relationship between the cats and people of the mosque was lovely. Lovely to see. The man told the cat to sit and it did just that. If you have some spare time take a look but don't come out of your way to see it.

Can't go inside but the street food outside is the best
Jul 2017 • Couples
This was actually one of my favorite spots in Lhasa because of the food experience there. Overall, our restaurants experience in Lhasa was a disappointment, but this little neighborhood saved out trip. It's a ten minute walk from Barkhor street and five minutes from St Regis hotel where we stayed.
One one side you have the grilling and soup experience and the other side the vegetable market with some pastry. Do yourself a favor a take the short walk there to experience something different and honestly it was our best food of our trip. The people there were also in my experience the nicest in the city.

Nothing Special - Non-Muslims Not Allowed Entry to ?mosque
Dec 2016 • Family
A short (10 mnute)walk from either the eastern end of Jokhang Temple or the corner of Lingkor and Jiansu East roads in the Muslim area of the old town. Is the green domed mosque, if you are Muslim its worth a stop. By far the best part about a visit to this area are the people and, if you aren't put off, the butcher shops. Its worth passing through the mosque area on the way to Barkhor Street and the Jokhang Temple just gain a sense of a different type of Tibetan.

Nice view from outside
Jul 2016 • Family
You cannot go inside unless you are Muslim which is a shame. Unless you are walking by there isn't any reason to visit here.

An interesting neighbourhood.
May 2016 • Friends
We could walk in through the gates, but you cannot go into the Mosque unless you are Muslim. It looked impressive from the outside, but our view was quite obstructed. It is interesting to look at the Muslim shops on the adjacent street - the caterpillars are quite expensive.
