“my favourite sightseeing experience”
Review of Huaisheng Mosque

Huaisheng Mosque
Ranked #42 of 706 things to do in Guangzhou
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 6, 2009

this was the highlight of my trip to guangzhou. it was a bit hard to find; i suggest you get your concierge to write it out in Chinese and to add the address in Chinese which is 56 Guangta Lu in Ximenkou (most cabs/people don't know about it so knowing the address is important).
wearing modest clothing, including a headscarf if you are female, is the correct etiquette.
the mosque was built in the Tang dynasty in true Tang architecture with a peaceful and beautiful courtyard with an authentic well. when within its confines you feel as though you have unearthed a traveller's gem: an undiscovered touristic experience.
there is a fantastic buzz and vibe on the street outside the mosque if you get there between 11 and 12 on a Friday; people preparing for the Jumma/Friday prayer (going later would mean it would be very busy and the main prayer time).
the people in the area were very friendly and i wished i could communicate more with them.
a fantastic experience that i will savour the memory of...
