The Mosque is outdoors, you walk through a busy market area to reach it. It is a peaceful and pretty setting.

In this relatively small but historic mosque the gardens seem as essential to its character as the buildings. Some of the trees are considered ancient although it wasn’t clear how old that is. The buildings are architecturally Chinese but there are several areas with more...More

I've seen many Mosques, so maybe I am unfair in the rating. If Mosques are new to you, then it will be well worth a 15-min walk-through.

When we visited it was a beautiful day, and the mosque and its gardens were lovely and peaceful. The cultural intersection of middle eastern religion (and Arabic script on walls) and Chinese culture made it especially interesting.

The mosque is within the Muslim Quarter. The extent of the property is very interesting. Make sure you plan your trip to avoid the times when members are praying - since you will not see as much at those times.

The gardens are lovely calm place to sit and contemplate. Unusual for a mosque a lot of the decorations are of birds, flowers and animals. Wonderful place with old men sitting chatting outside.

We visited Xian in April and booked a tour that included the Great Mosque, it is really different from the Mosques in our own country, and different from the Mosques in other places we had seen before. It was more like a Chinese garden, full...More

The Xi’an Mosque is a unique blend of Islamic and Chinese cultures, symbolism, and styles. It is unbelievably simple in style but beneath that simplicity is a very complex blend of cultures. The Chinese tortoise forms the plinth of most of the columns yet many...More
