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

This Mosque, located in the Xi'an Muslim quarter, is rather unusual architecturally. Bears more resemblance to a Chinese garden or temple than a Mosque at first glance. Peaceful place to get away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Xi'an.

it is a peaceful environ with calm people. They mistook me as someone from pakistan (I am indian) but then greeted me nicely. Architecture is a unique blend of chinese and central asian cultures. Do not miss the street which has lots of unique street foods available.

I know it's a mosque but apart from the prayer hall there's really not that much difference with any other temple. You can't even go into the prayer hall anyway so there's really no difference. The place itself was shabby and I'm not sure if it was worth the entrance fee. It seemed most of the side buildings were closed... More

We had a wonderful visit here. The site is steeped in history and had a beautiful serene feel to it (even though I am not Muslim). I was pleasantly surprised by the Mosque

After walking the busy Muslim streets it felt really good to come here, as it is very peaceful and you can feel the energy of this religion.

The mosque is located in the Muslim Quarter, not unlike a mosque in the world that is built just inside Chinese construction can be seen in Arabic, it is easy to miss but really nice district.

We had not heard of this place before we went, but the architecture, the ambience, the evening light all added up to a memorable stop. The path is through a series of openings so that each building/gate/structure you walk through stacks and you look from the entrance all the way back to the temple itself. We were there during evening... More

We enter the mosque area at dusk. There were not many tourists, very quiet and peaceful. Huge contrast with the hustle and bustle outside, at the Hui Streets. To me, this mosque is an unique evidence of Xi'An as the melting pot for centuries. The Hui people inhabited areas in Xi'An can be traced back to the Tang Dynasty. The... More

This place is a true symbiosis of cultures: A mosque constructed in Chinese style. Obviously, very different to the "typical" Muslim world. But a very interesting reminder that there are many different cultures and religions in China and if you want to experience it by yourself, go there.
