“Just have a look from outside”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

Just have a look from outside and don't pay to enter the site because only the outside tower is wort seeing and also somewhat of historical importance

“Nice history to it”
Reviewed May 6, 2012

Not much to see here. Worth a look though. The design of the minaret is pretty.

“Underwhelming”
Reviewed November 27, 2011

Very little to see inside the mosque and busloads of tourists. The most interesting thing was the graveyard behind the mosque itself.

“Interesting mosque, very different from any other I have seen in china”
Reviewed June 10, 2010

This minaret is built in the Afghani style and is very photogenic. The mosque itself is very similar to other mosques but the minaret is what brings you in. Only negative - to climb was an extra 250Y which I was not prepared to pay so cannot review the inside of the minaret.
