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.

I recommend a visit to the mosque to understand the.Muslim ethnic culture which is a integral part of the city. Xian was the beginning and /or end destination of the main ancient Silk Road.

Interesting. relaxing. 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. Read about the history of Mulims in Xian -...More

Hard to find but worth seeing. Very large area. Gives a bit of history to the very commercialized street food area of the Moslem quarter. Well worth seeing.

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.
