西安大清真寺

Recommendation by Lemi

The Great Mosque of Xi’an (also known as Huajue Mosque) is a dazzling mix of Islamic and far-eastern Architecture. The prayer hall is off-limits to non-Muslim visitors, but the five courtyards invite admiration from locals and tourists. Take your time to wander through the picture-perfect pavilions and manicured gardens. At first glance, the place of worship looks like a traditional Chinese temple. However, devout Muslims will know that the mosque dutifully faces Mecca. A closer look also reveals little touches like Arabic calligraphy carved into wood and stone!
