Dating back to the Ming period, this mosque features inner courtyards that bear more of a resemblance to a Chinese temple.

The place itself was less than amazing. Just a plan sort of place really. But it gives one a sense of the scope and penetration of Islam centuries earlier. And interesting to witness people in attendance amidst a non-Islamic nation. It reminds you what lies westward int western China and beyond. It is the eastern 'end' of the Silk Road.

There's not a great deal to do in here, but the entrance is cheap and if you're wandering around the muslim quarter its a nice little place to have a look around. Some nice trees and buildings, sit down and have a rest from all the walking.

An interestingly different place. A mosque in the Chinese style. When you enter (fee) you leave the noise, sights and smells of the Moslem markets, to place of quiet beauty. You can just wander the grounds admiring the trees and the architecture. Worth a visit because it is different and is convenient to the Drum and Bell towers.

This is the oldest mosque in Xi'an. Built by traders, it melds middle-eastern and Chinese styles. Gardens punctuated by 'gates' lead to the prayer hall. Coming from the bustle of the street, this is a nice quiet spot that feels very relaxing (and they don't require the removal of shoes).

The peaceful Great Mosque of Xi'an is a place to have a break from the bustling environment of the Muslim Quarter in Xi'an. We thought that the blend of Islamic and Chinese architecture to be amazing. A must see in Xi'an.
