Next to Bazaar

Interesting, right next to the bazaar. Not worth to go out of your way to see, but if you are at the bazaar, you cant miss it.

The major site of the grand bazar. Even if there were no bazar around the mosque is well worth seeing. It's a splendid old building, one of the most interesting sites in Urumqi.

This is not called the Southern Mosque...it's called the Grand Bazar. It's a copy of the Bukharan Ensemble in Uzbekistan but really just a brand new massive shopping centre with zillions of small stalls selling chinese clothes and trinkets. Visit in winter for better prices and more local ambience.
