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

Nestled in the middle of the Muslim quarter you find this gem. It is a mosque in the Chinese style. The gardens are peaceful and beautiful. I did not give the site a 5 because the mosque is in need of restoration. Do not miss!!!

It is a great place to go and take a time to look all the details of the architecture. If you are a male is good to go inside the mosk.

This mosque is rather interesting in that it blends into its surroundings rather than dominate them and is encircled by a high wall of Chinese style. Inside it is devoted to Islam but in such a way that it fits in with its surroundings with its buildings of classic Chinese style. This was created on purpose as the Muslims wanted... More

Nice and quiet!!! See pictures.... And the market very interesting! Lot of food and small things to buy. To spend there walking about 3 hours perhaps more if you like street markets We went to the two towers, drum and bell, and walking after... to this area.

Tucked away off an alley, this mosque is amazingly quiet. Since a number of our tour group were non-Asians, as we were taking pictures of the mosque, several of the mosque members were taking pictures of the tour group! Some of the children were fascinated to see in person, Caucasians. In fact when we were approaching the Muslim Quarter, our... More

Tucked away in the hectic, bustling alleys of Hui Min Jie, The Muslim Quarter, Xi'an Mosque offers a secluded respite for the overwhelmed visitor. Like many historical sights in China its upkeep leaves a little to be desired, but it's well worth a visit if you're in the area. The abundant greenery and birdsong make it easy to forgot you're...

The sign showing the way to the Xi'an Mosque is quite obscure. It's on the left at the entrance to the Muslim Quarter. A narrow lane lined with small shops selling all sorts of souvenirs lead to this ancient and well-preserved mosque. Here, in its lovely garden with pretty pavilions, the visitor can escape the cacophony and garish lights of... More

When I remember our visit of the mosque, my most distinctive memory is how tranquil this place was. We visited in the evening, there were not too many other people, so we were able to enjoy the remarkable buildings and the beautiful garden nearly on our own. The contrast was especially striking compared to the busy market of the Muslim... More

This Chinese mosque is a surprise. Old building is hidden in Moslem Quarter, protected with wall and behind an old entrance. When you expect a square and building with a dome, you will find a quiet Chinese garden with several decorated pavilions protected garden and way, leading to a bigger wooden hall. Find a guide to explain the place or... More

This mosque is quite to difficult to locate on your own. It's in the heart of the Muslim quarter. You enter the Main Street of the Muslim quarter; turn right once you see the the first lane, then walk approximately 30 meters and then turn left into the next lane. The Mosque is in that lane on your right hand... More
