Inspirock Rating:
4.2/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web
A fusion of both Islamic and Chinese architectural elements, Xi'an Mosque represents one of the most famous Muslim sites in the country. Founded in 742 CE by traveling Arab and Persian traders, the mosque has long served as a hub of worship in the region. Wander the extensive grounds, split into four distinct courtyards, to enjoy the manicured gardens and lush surroundings. As you approach the main building, you'll find an array of calligraphy engravings and brightly-colored awning decorations in hues of red and green. Note that although the mosque features the usual minaret, its tiled rooftops recall the classical Chinese style with their signature upward-curving corners. Keep in mind that the prayer hall does not open to visitors. Arrange your visit to Xi'an Mosque and discover more family-friendly attractions in Xi'an using our Xi'an vacation planner.
