A unique mosque with a 1300 years of history. 13000 square meter of compound, with a fanstasticj story or two. Recommend to get an expert guide to bring it life. Free if you can prove you are a Moslem.

It was recommended by our travel consultant. We were so happy that we took this suggestion. The muslim bazaar nearby was amazing and the mosque itself was quiet, peaceful with old Chinese styled buildings and ancient furniture, stone tablets stored in the mosque.

Located behind the busy Muslim Quarter Street is the Ancient Grand Mosque of Xian. With its 4 layered courtyards and various towers in between, it showcases the great synergy between Islamic and Chinese culture. A lot of shops located around this mosque. Be prepared to...More
