Dating back to the Ming period, this mosque features inner courtyards that bear more of a resemblance to a Chinese temple.

Not the biggest attraction in Xian, but it's well worth the visit. Really nice buildings and old architecture. Not far from the Muslim quarter.

The Mosque is at the back of the Food Street in Xi'an. It is a more than thousand year old structure which is very well maintained. One of the unique features of this is that the inner walls have the whole Quran carved on the wood. But there is an entry fee for Non-Muslims of RMB 25.

Remarkable not only for its age and authenticity but also for the Chinese influence woven all through its design. A nice quiet respite in the midst of a crowded City.

The Xi'an Mosque in any season is a beautiful,quiet place. In Fall the trees within the walls are bright with color; in Spring there are welcome blossoms. I like to visit before the last call to prayer in the evening. Gentleman gather to visit before entering the mosque and are not at all unfriendly to have visitors in their midst.... More

The mosque looks like a villa. Located at Muslim Street, it's very convenient for tourists to visit while shopping at the pasar malam style shops. Still maintaining an antique designs back in ancient times, the mosque shows why it should be preserved and remain a tourist attraction. Chinese antiques and relics can be found there. Worth a visit!

Tjhis is the oldest Mosque in China. A sanctuary from the street stalls and crowds of the shopping areas. Sit down, cool off and marvel at the age and architecture. Make a small donation on your way in. Most of the signs are multi lingual, Arabic, Chinese and English.

I was interested in the Mosque for its historical value; however, I found it to be a peaceful retreat in an otherwise bustling city. It was especially relaxing after leaving the excitement that is the crowded streets of the Muslim quarter.

Though a bit difficult to find through the maze of Xi'ans Muslim Quarter backstreets, a visit to this Chinese style Mosque is a worthwhile delight. Lovely garden, and a modest traditional style Chinese architecture create a peaceful ambience in the midst of a bustling neighborhood. Friday is Prayer Day, when the Mosque is quite actively utilised. Other days are generally... More

In the heart of the Muslim quarter, very near the Drum Tower, this is a must see in Xi'an. It's almost impossible to believe it's a mosque, as it appears to be like many temples and monasteries in China and it's only when you take a very close look at the scripts on signs and tablets, you realize the difference....
