While this is the largest mosque in China, I personally don't find it very intriguing. At times, you find worshippers are "outnumbered" by tourist groups. That being said, the mosque is situated in an area where many shops and restaurants are frequented by locals. It...More

The Id Kah Mosque is easy to find if you are exploring part of the Old Town. It is the heart of Muslim prayer and worship in the area and can accommodate up to 50,000 in the peaceful outdoor areas which is shaded by trees.

this mosque is in the centre of the old town of Kashgar. The outside is a nice colour however theres not much to see in the grounds or inside as some rooms are roped off but its worth a visit.

The Idgah sqaure is almost the city center. The building main gate is surprisingly located on the left outer corner. Usually all mosques have it in the middle. After the main gate there are courtyards. Main hall is simple and beautiful. Entrance is not free.

Our hotel was next to the mosque, so we got to enjoy seeing it and the surrounding square and streets our whole time here, but seeing the inside of the mosque itself was very short and simple. The gift carpet from Iran and pulpits were...More

Visitors can buy a ticket out of praying hours, a large garden, friendly guys ready to answer questions in English. The mosque is large, though less impressive and imposing for the largest in Xinjiang, prayer sections are ofc limit but are easily viewed.
