Juma Prayer in Beijing during layover (12 hours layover)
Dec 2019
I went to see this mosque and said my Juma prayer (held on Friday at 1:30PM local time) during my Beijing layover on Dec 6, 2019. It was amazing to see how 1000 years ago, some muslim reached here and built the mosque (though it's not the same mosque that was built 1000 years ago). I felt very spiritual and also lost in the history while in the Mosque. Outside of the mosque, I was able to find quite a few places to eat halal food. I definitely recommend anyone to visit this unique mosque and eat some halal food from nearby restaurants.

Beautiful masjid in a halal street of beijing

If you are a Muslim you need to come this place for two reasons ,one for the oldest masjid in Beijing to see the architecture and calmness that you find here and two for the halal food which can be a hotpot or the beef noodles you need to come to explore this street

A nice combination of Chinese and Islamic cultures. Muslims can enter the prayer hall to perform their prayers.

Hidden gem in Beijing
Jan 2018 • Solo
The Niujie mosque is a very interesting place in Beijing. During the long history of Beijing there were many groups and believes arriving a the capital of the kingdom of the middle. The Muslim arrived also here and this old complex (started 996 ac) is interesting discover.
The small size still offer plentiful details to observe. The style is strongly influenced by the traditional Chinese architecture.It is an active religious center so even if the heat of Beijing invite you to wear shorts or other skimpy attire please refrain here. The prayer hall is not open to non Muslim.
The peace in the courtyard invite you to sit and rest for a moment forgetting the hustle of a metropolis like Beijing. In the backyard there are some 13 century tombs from imams. The street is known for its Muslim food so keep an eye open for restaurants or food shops.

Visited as a Tourist

I visited the mosque as a non-Muslim visitor. Admission is 5 Chinese dollars (About US$1), and I think it is well worth it!
This mosque has traditional Chinese buildings, nothing conventional Islamic is found on the exteriors. I didn’t get to visit the inside of the mosque because no visitor is allowed. From the outside, if it were not the Persian writing on some of the flying buttresses, I wouldn’t know I’m at a mosque. Really amazing traditional Chinese architecture!

Come in the afternoon around 4pm (Dec 2017), and one would catch an amazing piece of sunset at the mosque. Good picture op!

Be respectful :) It is a working religious site.

Recommend time to spend - for non-believers, 30-45 minutes.

PS: female bathroom is located in the female quarter, FAR in the back!

It was surprising to know that Beijing had a mosque that was more than 1000 years old. It is in the Muslim quarter of Beijing. It is a small mosque with nondescript architecture unlike mosques in Turkey. Chinese influences ware obviously very visible in its design. There was security at the entrance. Warm water for ablution was nice unlike mosque in Turkey with their very cold water.

Magnificent Niujie Mosque
Sep 2016 • Friends
We went there for the first time to pray. The oldest and biggest mosque in Beijing. Such a beautiful architecture. Mixed of Chinese and Middle East architecture, I guess. Nice spot for photos shoot as well. Non-muslims are welcome but should wear proper attire.

Nearby, we can easily find tasty halal foods.
