    Admission is not recommended, because there is a small yard and places of worship, than outside looking at the spectacular and beautiful. Mosque is located in the historic center, and tour the old city.

Where to stay in Kashi

For traditional ambiance and a taste of Uyghur culture, look to the old town when searching for accommodations in Kashi. Dotted throughout the historical district, you can find small, intimate guesthouses and inns, as well as youth hostels offering shared dormitories. Head just outside the bounds of the old town and you'll see a range of larger, Western-style hotels offering comfortable rooms with all the expected amenities.
