When strolling through the Muslim Quarter, be sure and stop by the mosque, one of the oldest surviving in China. It is beautiful and peaceful.

Upon arrival the weather was very drizzlely and cold. However, the scenery was lovely and tranquil, not many tourists were there to walk inside the Mosque. Very peaceful place and beautiful cows to be seen.
