The Grand Mosque which was originally built in 742 AD, is a large ancient architectural complex featuring the Chinese palace style with a long history. It covers an area of 13000 square meters. Inside the Mosque stands the large wooden archway built in the beginning of the 17th century, 9 meters high with the roof of glazed tiles and the delicately engraved flying eaves. The Mosque displays the harmonious combination of both Islamic and Chinese cultures.
