Call at the Great Mosque of Xi’an

12/23/2011 Kemys Sights Xian 6162
Located near the Drum Tower on 30 Huajue Lane of Xi'an, the Great Mosque is the oldest and one of the most renowned mosques in China, as well as the major spot for the religious activities of over 60000 Moslems in Xi'an. It is also an important historic monument in Shaanxi Province.

Unlike other Arabic mosques, the Great Mosque in Xi'an possesses much Chinese tradition in both its design and its artistic outlook. The Mosque at Huajue Lane is the largest in Xi'an, and it is also one of the earliest built on a comparatively large scale, and the best preserved mosque in China.

The plaque of “mosque” in courtyards

Standing in the shade of a tree when observing the temple, I suddenly smelled a familiar scent, so refreshing… and looked up, only to find myself was standing under a chimonanthus tree. Since this winter is not very cold, the chimonanthus trees were still in full leaves, so not very eye-catching in the large yard.

I got up early in the morning, and went to this mosque as soon as it was opened. There were not many tourists at that time, only two or three staffs, not yet reached the twelfth lunar month, has begun to bloom here in full bloom Spring of. Thought it had been the twelfth lunar month, the chimonanthus trees had began to bloom…
