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

If you google map it shows a wrong location at a cross junction. If you are facing west of the cross junction, turn left and left again to Huajue Alley. It is along the alley with a big poster saying The Great Mosque of Xi'an....More

Our tour guide was rather dismissive of the Muslim population and said the main reason she takes groups there was it has the cleaned bathroom in the area, but I found the mosque's architecture incredibly interesting. I wish they'd had more signs in English so...More

Xi'an Mosque is a beautiful sanctuary, located little outside the town in a quiet district of the town.

Its a nice historic mosque tucked away in the Muslim quarter of the city. Some cool buildings and history. Most of the people I saw were other tourists walking around. They do not have much in terms of information.

The Mosque is outdoors, you walk through a busy market area to reach it. It is a peaceful and pretty setting.

I've seen many Mosques, so maybe I am unfair in the rating. If Mosques are new to you, then it will be well worth a 15-min walk-through.
