All reviews prayer hall muslim quarter chinese architecture non muslims peaceful place call to prayer worth a visit silk road street market drum tower ming dynasty interesting place buddhist temple entrance fee street food bell tower islam
Several of the buildings are original and unrestored. It's very interesting to see the intricate detail of the woodwork. The history and culture of Islam in the area is also pretty neat. This place can be seen in about 30 minutes.
Do drop by when visiting Muslim quarters. Along an alley off the main Huamin Street. Serene compound with a pagoda as a minaret. Wooden prayer hall. Elaborate entrance gate like Japanese Tori. Free entry for muslims and 25 yuan for non muslims.
If you are a muslim or you can talk in Arabic- you can get in the Mosque (I couldn't). It is worth wondering around within the premises and enjoy the architecture and the garden.

Very nice place to visit and the people are nice and friendly. The grounds are well maintained. It is very peaceful inside and the architecture is magnificent. It is a nice place to visit when walking around the Muslim Quarter.
This mosque was at the terminus of China's "silk road" - lots of history here. Interesting architecture, and an amazing succession of gardens leading to main chamber. Make sure and enjoy the numerous carvings and inscriptions.
