#2 of 8 in Historic Sites in Kashi
Built in 1441 supposedly on cemetery grounds, the largest mosque in China, Idkah Mosque, features ornate decorations and a shaded pine tree courtyard. The exterior displays a brick tower, embellished with green flower patterns, while the interior prayer hall stands out for its impressive light blue pillars. Take a stroll around to see pictures and carvings etched onto the mosque's walls, then cool off in the garden next to a small pond, which presents a perfect reflection of the surrounding trees and bushes.

  • Of all the sights to see in Xinjiang, no one must leave the province without seeing the Id Kah Mosque with their own eyes, which is not only the largest mosque in China, but also one of the most famous sights to see in the 新疆维吾尔族自治区. This beautiful place is located in Kashgar, a city located in the far Western reaches of China, near the borders with Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, and Pakistan.
