In such a busy, pulsating area of Xian, this serene mosque with unique architecture is a must see for visitors. Beautiful garden area surrounding the mosque.

Having lived in the Middle East this is a mosque like none other. Feels like you have stepped back in time. The whole place is collection of very old And somewhat dilapidated wooden structures that still show their grandeur and importance. It is a charming unique place. Outside is a labyrinth of stalls that drive high prices that leave you... More

Like any pagodas, this one is no different. Nice quiet mosque. Probably great place to catch a break after all the honking -__- in the streets

Birds chirping, bees buzzing, flowers blooming, water fountains tinkling and cats purring - the spiritual bliss mixed with history and architectural beauty is mesmerizing. No mosque visiting will prepare you for this. Dont miss this one.

This was the best part of my visit to Xian. The mosque is over 1300 years old. Amazing artwork and history. If you know the history of early china you'll chime how much early islam and the muslims benefited china to help and unite them. Research and enjoy your experience

If you are going to the Muslim Quarter, it is worth seeking out. A calm oasis in the bustling city. Mix of Chinese architecture and Arabic is very cool.

Ancient Mosque in the heart of Xian. Worth seeing as part of the history of Xian and its role in the Silk Road. The Muslims came to Xian as part of trade.

You must navigate in the meandering streets of the muslin quarter to find the entrance to the Mosque. It lays within a nice park which is an Island in an otherwise heavily constructed area. The atmosphere is quiet and pleasant. The prayer hall is a monumental timber building which unfortunately I was not able to visit as it was praying... More

It doesn't look like a mosque apart from some arabic writing and the barred access to the prayer room. It's more like a beautiful and ancient Chinese temple, with a great garden. I couldn't find it but a policeman showed me the way.

My favourite place in Xian was this seemingly little visited Muslim temple. It claims to be the first of its kind in China and certainly the buildings and gardens have an aged charm to them. The gardens are wonderfully peaceful and serene, a world a way from the hot tourist mess that is the "Muslim street" just a few hundred... More
