Changying Mosque was first built under the Zhengde reign during Ming Dynasty and rebuilt in Qing Dynasty. When you enter the mosque, you can see a water court and a classroom in the front yard while the main hall and side halls are in the back yard. The temple is well-preserved because Muslims has continued to raise money to enlarge the architecture since 1986. Nowadays, with a total area of 8,459 square meters and a constructed area of 4,578 square meters， the mosque has major structures including the main hall, Chuihua Gate, the veranda, and other facilities. In addition, a house for female Muslims to worship has been newly built.
