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

The most peaceful place in Xi'an. The soul of Islam combines to Chinese architecture. We visited this place during June 2016 in the evening around 6.30 pm. , so we paid less for the ticket. They prepared a big meal.

The mosque itself was off limits as it was time for prayer so I wandered through the grounds and listened to the chanting within. Stop by when... More

Peaceful gem hidden in the Muslim quarter. I enjoyed our visit here and observing the Muslim community in China was particularly interesting. Praying here was peaceful and spiritually uplifting.

Our guide Carol from Travel China gave us the history of this attraction. Although we could not enter this religious site we did get a good overview and take some pictures. A must see

We were brought here first by our guide but to do so requires one to pass through the labrynth of the muslim quarter. It contradicts the hustle and buslte of the shopping area and the food street that surrounds the whole area. The mosque is quite small, for china standards, but is unique in a sense where muslims are present... More

After all the food stalls and alleys full of shops, you come to an area of peace and tranquility. 15 Yuan to get in a lots to see and walk round, except the prayer hall. Fascinating historical buildings, you would not know you were in the middle of a city of 9 million people.

The place itself was less than amazing. Just a plan sort of place really. But it gives one a sense of the scope and penetration of Islam centuries earlier. And interesting to witness people in attendance amidst a non-Islamic nation. It reminds you what lies westward int western China and beyond. It is the eastern 'end' of the Silk Road.

There's not a great deal to do in here, but the entrance is cheap and if you're wandering around the muslim quarter its a nice little place to have a look around. Some nice trees and buildings, sit down and have a rest from all the walking.
