While walking along Tumen Street, one passes by the QIngjing Mosque gatehouse, as well as the outer part of the Fengtian Hall (奉天壇), which was once the main prayer hall of the mosque. After an earthquake, it's not used anymore. There's a nearby modern mosque which was donated by Saudi Arabia.

This Mosque is over a thousand years old. Built around 595 - 605 AD now stands in ruins. Not much to see for those who do not like history but a lot to learn about how the Arab arrived in China in the early years.

Very peaceful mosque with an interesting history and clearly still well used. It's also set in an interesting area to wander about. The tiny shop is worth a stop, it's well priced and we bought several Islamic/Chinese cups and a tea set.

This is simultaneously the ruins of a 1000+ year old mosque (in a city that was, after all, founded by Arab traders in China), a modern renovation, and an active place of worship. The older parts are of course most scenic. The whole place no longer has a roof, but the palm trees and reasonable well manicured gardens make for... More

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... More

Quanzhou, called Zaitun(means Olive) in Arabic, is the starting port of Maritime Silkroad. There is the oldest mosque in China. Imagine how Marco Paulo traveled

This ruin is a testament to an interesting epoch in human history: the era of the Indian Ocean trade or the so-called Maritime Silk Road. A thousand years ago the city of Quanzhou was flocked with Islamic traders from the Middle East, who traded rare and valuable spices for china and silk. This mosque is a survivor of that era,...

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... More

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