City's teeming Muslim population has been inhabiting here since the 17th century . Temple built in 1693 and people inside were friendly and inviting when requesting for entry . Many Halal restaurants near mosque , suitable for Muslim travelers .

Much of the mosque is undergoing renovations, but it is still nice to walk by and have a look at the mix if Muslim and Chinese architecture.

The area is interesting and so is what you can see of the mosque. It is not particularly beautiful, however.

Beautiful architecture mixing the Islamic and Chinese styles. It is right in the city centre and surrounded by other Islamic style buildings. A lot of halal food shops right in front as well.

This was one of my favorite places when I lived in Hohhot. It's actually surrounded by amazing restaurants and bakers, which is a big part of the appeal. You must try the sweets! I remember these little balls with a core of mashed dates, covered...More
