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

It took me three visits to Muslim Quarter to find this mosque, because the signage was not very clearly placed. I only found it at the end after I asked one of the street vendor in the muslim quarter. You need to go through a narrow alleyway filled plenty of shops to reach here (makes it very obvious right? not.)

The mosque itself is very interesting blend of chinese and arabic architecture. It has a great garden area to stroll in. It is still an active place of worship hence you must be respectful and not make too much noise here. When i went, there wasn't many visitors at all, which made it even better

A very simply and peaceful place to getaway from the bustling market streets of Xian, Xian's main attraction are the Terracotta warriors. A small donation is required to tour the area freely, mind you there are no guides or tours which allows you to explore the grounds on your own, with the call to prayer echoing in the background makes this place a surreal adventure.

You wind through covered alleys filled with little shops, some of which actually have things you might want to buy. The Mosque itself, considering its age and its marriage of architectural styles, both Indian and Chinese, is a delight.

This mosque is not at all dome shaped like mosques around the world. Rather if no one tells you that it is a mosques you would provbably have thought that it was one of China's famous old building. The structure is typical chinese structure. I really enjoyed visiting this mosque as it is different.

We weren't quite sure what to expect here, but it was much more interesting than we thought, and not what you would expect a mosque to look like - the markets nearby are also excellent and very interesting, so put this one on your itiniterary.
