Qingjing Mosque (or temple as it is known in China) is located on the busy Tumen Street. It was built in 1009 with stone structure and reflected the communications that Quanzhou had with Arabian countries.
Only the Great entrance gate remains. In the inside,
what remains are the structural walls and stones tablets with Arabic wordings more than thousand years
ago. There is not much to see but if you happen to be in the vicinity, you might as well pop in to view this oldest Islamic Mosque in China.
Admission fee : Rmb-5

Quanzhou is a maritime area for many centuries. This is a well-preserved mosque and the only one left from the Song Dynasty according to write-ups. It is located next to the Guangdi temple, a popular local street area. There are many English descriptors around the hotel detailing its history. The buildings are deserted on non-prayer hours, more tourists than locals. A great place to visit to understand the cosmopolitan nature of Quanzhou.

This mosque was originally built about 1300 years ago, around 600 AD. Not many people know that the Muslims came to China long time before Marco Polo. This fact is not well known because most people only learn the Euro-centric version of Chinese history. Though the original structures are essentially gone (that's the way with old things, especially in mainland China), but the visit of the ruins as well as the new mosque was a fascinating experience.

I don't think this is an active mosque any more but it is an interesting place if you have some free time

Amazing history of Islam in China, a good presentation and beautiful Arabic caligraphy done in Chinese style. It is an eye opening place and shows the tolerance of the Chinese to other religions and people.

Completed in 1009, the Mosque was in use for most of the last 1000 years. It was built for the Muslim sea traders who visited coastal China. Although mostly intact, there is little left of the Mosque outside of the walls, which are in remarkably good condition. Well worth your time to visit if you are in the area.

Very well preserved remains. Quiet, peaceful - but one hour is enough time, so good idea to combine with something else local.

It’s old and historic but not very impressive and not much there other than the basic walls
You get entrance tickets round the back over s little bridge

Important historically but the Chinese temple next door is more impressive and has more going on!

I only saw it from the outside. I got there after 5.30pm, so the gate was locked. I could not stay until maghrib, so I am not sure if it opens again for evening prayers. From the outside, there is some impressive 1000 year old stone work, and you can see the more modern mosque. Nice to see a bit of diversity in the middle of a bustling city. This is an interesting area to visit on foot, with several temples close by, and Zhongshan Road. I will go back some time to see inside.
