This is a beautiful complex of buildings that at first glance is not obviously Islamic. Figure-based art, including dragons, is to be found here, and the minaret is traditionally Chinese in its architectural form. Much of the complex is really a garden or park, with...More

One of most beautiful places we saw. Entry is now ¥25 and its worth every penny. Just head through the market and look for signs.
