The doors were locked but you could glimpse the old ruins from the street. It’s worth going for the history and because it’s near the rest of the temples.

You are free to roam about and take pictures so long as you do not walk into the prayer hall (whether a solat is in session or not). The only oddity is that they charge an entrance fee.

This Mosque is over a thousand years old. Built around 595 - 605 AD now stands in ruins. Not much to see for those who do not like history but a lot to learn about how the Arab arrived in China in the early years.

Very peaceful mosque with an interesting history and clearly still well used. It's also set in an interesting area to wander about. The tiny shop is worth a stop, it's well priced and we bought several Islamic/Chinese cups and a tea set.
