Important to preserve.
Dec. 2020 • Solo
Unless you visited during one of the prayers, you could not tell this is a mosque. Architecturally, there are no signs. Minaret is a the storey pagoda. When you look closely, there's are some inscriptions in Arabic but they are mostly rubbed off. More prominent inscriptions address in Chinese. The general conditions of the complex is rare poor, but I saw since renovations in progress on the north side.

What I found interesting is a large information board in Chinese, Arabic and English about the peaceful nature of Islam.

I'm glad the mosque is functioning. It is important to preserve sites like this.

The most beautiful mosque in China
Aug. 2020
Nestled in the old city centre, Xi'an's mosque is both a beautifully restored old building, a testament to Islam's integration into Chinese society, and a peaceful retreat in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city. It is an absolute must-see if you go to Xi'an !

Modest Mosque at Best
Jan. 2020
Very small functioning mosque with a few stone and wooden archways and a small garden area. Somewhat rundown. Unless you are muslim you will not be allowed to enter the sanctuary area. Overall not very interesting.

Quiet and Peaceful, Beautifully Landscaped Mosque
Oct. 2019
According to Wikipedia, the Xian Mosque (or Great Mosque of Xian) is the largest mosque in China. This Mosque is located next to the Muslim Quarter area, so if you are visiting the popular Muslim Quarter you might as well visit the Mosque as well. The setting at the Mosque is very peaceful, quiet and well landscaped - good place to take photos of the well manicured landscaping surrounding the different gateways from the entrance to the main mosque building - beautiful area to visit.

As you walk from the main entrance to the Mosque, you will pass-through 4 or 5 different gateways and courtyards. The lovely landscaped walkway goes from one end to the other through these centuries old gateways.

Although this Mosque area is small in overall size, it is a very nice place to visit when you are at the nearby Muslim Quarter.

Islam in China

A fully functioning mosque in the middle of the bustling inner city. Interesting back story and the use of Chinese architecture makes this worth a visit. The courtyards are also delightful.

Wasn't a highlight for us
Oct. 2019
You don't actually get to go into the mosque, just look through the door. There are some rooms you can see into that have very old furniture from one of the Dynasties. We found the area around the mosque much more interesting and could have left this off the itinerary

A must-see while in Xi'an
Jan. 2020
A series of beautiful courtyards, each with intricate design details. It demonstrates a beautiful balance between Islamic and Chinese architecture. I usually have very little interest in architecture and art, but even I found this mosque to be fascinating.

Great Place
Dec. 2019
A great place to seek some peace and serenity from the street. Entry fee is RMB15/pax during the lull period. This is a better maintain mosque than the 大学习清真寺.

A pity I am not allowed to enter the prayer hall for being a non-muslim.
