Great Mosque

For over 1,300 years, they have been an integral part of Xian’s colorful daily life. The 50,000 strong Muslim community that lives and works today in Xian traces its history to those Middle Eastern merchants who settled here after travelling the Silk Road.

Today the Muslim community supports 10 or so mosques and runs its own primary school, food shops and restaurants. The covered alleyway leading to the main mosque, Huajue Xiang, has good-humored bazaar vendors that will guide you to the mosque, built in 742.
