“Historically important but only for Muslims”
Review of Huaisheng Mosque

Huaisheng Mosque
Ranked #43 of 706 things to do in Guangzhou
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 April 2017

I know this mosque is very important because it is the oldest in China but as a non-Muslim it is not welcoming. Churches allow visitors to enter but this mosque is not open for non-muslims. You can see the minaret peeking out over the fence and it is near the Ximenkou metro stop and Guangxiao Temple so it is easy to visit to take the picture of the entrance and the pagoda and then move on.

Peaceful place, happy to see Muslim from all over the world gather here even though we don't understand the kutbah which is in Chinese language... halal food everywhere
Nice Chinese architecture

The oldest mosque in Guangzhou...there is a decent hotel Jia Mei Hotel adjacent to this Mosque and next to the Jia Mei Hotel is a halal restaurant, Abi Waqqas Restaurant, located at Guanta Lu (Road) which is highly recommended. Go for its Mutton Briyani and Mutton Curry.

You go back in time when visiting this mosque. It is small and not so spectacular if you have seen the greatest of the world. Would recommend if you have spare time but it is not a must see

It is a historic and old mosque. This was my first time to China so I am not sure about the conditions of other mosques in China but I found this one to be a bit lacking in terms of its maintenance. Despite that, it's fascinating to see how this mosque became fully-packed with local and foreign Muslims who gathered here for Friday prayer. Besides visiting the mosque itself, all Muslim tourists are recommended to come here as plenty of halal restaurants can be found in close vicinity to the mosque.
