We stumbled upon this beautiful old mosque in the Muslim quarter in Xi’An and were surprised and so happy. Its gardens and buildings are so pretty. Historic. Nothing like a traditional mosque, rather a Chinese style mosque. Unique and gorgeous.

More than 600 years old Mosque with lots of history, at every step there is some historical plaque citing reconstructions from then Kings and Senior Government Officials

Fantastic experience wondering in the courtyard of the mosque and offering prayers with the locals in the prayer hall

The attraction with this mosque are its gardens. Xi'an is a busy, bustling city. The mosque provides welcome reprieve, fresh air in the middle of the town centre, beautiful architecture and plants. The prayer hall is not accessible for anyone not praying, as is the case with many mosques. It is not the main attraction, the gardens and its pavilions and plants are the attraction.

Unless you visited during one of the prayers, you could not tell this is a mosque. Architecturally, there are no signs. Minaret is a the storey pagoda. When you look closely, there's are some inscriptions in Arabic but they are mostly rubbed off. More prominent inscriptions address in Chinese. The general conditions of the complex is rare poor, but I saw since renovations in progress on the north side.

What I found interesting is a large information board in Chinese, Arabic and English about the peaceful nature of Islam.

I'm glad the mosque is functioning. It is important to preserve sites like this.

Nestled in the old city centre, Xi'an's mosque is both a beautifully restored old building, a testament to Islam's integration into Chinese society, and a peaceful retreat in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city. It is an absolute must-see if you go to Xi'an !

Very small functioning mosque with a few stone and wooden archways and a small garden area. Somewhat rundown. Unless you are muslim you will not be allowed to enter the sanctuary area. Overall not very interesting.

According to Wikipedia, the Xian Mosque (or Great Mosque of Xian) is the largest mosque in China. This Mosque is located next to the Muslim Quarter area, so if you are visiting the popular Muslim Quarter you might as well visit the Mosque as well. The setting at the Mosque is very peaceful, quiet and well landscaped - good place to take photos of the well manicured landscaping surrounding the different gateways from the entrance to the main mosque building - beautiful area to visit.

As you walk from the main entrance to the Mosque, you will pass-through 4 or 5 different gateways and courtyards. The lovely landscaped walkway goes from one end to the other through these centuries old gateways.

Although this Mosque area is small in overall size, it is a very nice place to visit when you are at the nearby Muslim Quarter.

A fully functioning mosque in the middle of the bustling inner city. Interesting back story and the use of Chinese architecture makes this worth a visit. The courtyards are also delightful.
