Enjoy a tranquil visit to this large Mosque. Learn the history of how it came to be. It is worth a trip. If you go to the Muslim Street, it leads to the Mosque.

Xi'an Mosque is a beautiful sanctuary, located little outside the town in a quiet district of the town.

Its a nice historic mosque tucked away in the Muslim quarter of the city. Some cool buildings and history. Most of the people I saw were other tourists walking around. They do not have much in terms of information.
