Traveling from the heart of Islamic Civilization, it was an honor to visit this beautiful and genuine piece of Chinese architectural masterpiece. A mosque which draws parallels to similar masterpieces that we experience in the Middle East and all over. A must visit if you are traveling to the Chinese capital

The same year the Emperor officially declared it as a 'mosque'. The declaration is still written on a stone both in Chinese and Persian. A nice architectural view and heritage. The history of...

We went to niujie for friday (jumuah) prayer. It is the oldest mosque in Beijing and it was wonderful to see so many people from different places (with their different cultures) gathered to do prayer here. The mosque is huge and looks like a small complex with many buildings for different use. Definitely bigger than dongsi mosque. The women have... More

I enjoy visiting this mosque everytime I visit to Beijing. The history spans more than 500 years. The architecture is just breathtaking. Give it a try, meditate here and let the peace immerse you

There is a gate fee of 10 RMB. There are English signs and a map to indicate the landmarks. Buildings have a blend of Islamic calligraphy and... More

It's quite a distance walk from the subway station to the mosque like 20-30 minutes walk. But it's all worth the walk...a very old mosque, a heritage you wouldn't want to miss out on. It's very peaceful place...but walking around the mosque complex is like walking in a maze...Not like the usual mosque you see around the world...the Chinese Dynasty... More
