Dongguan Mosque

Dongguan Mosque is located in eastern Xiling City, and is the largest mosque in Qinghai Province and one of the four greatest mosques in Northwest China. It was established during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), and has a history of about six hundred years. It is the most well-preserved ancient building. The Mosque is not only famous for its magnificent architecture but also as a religious education center and as the highest learning institution of Islam.

The mosque covers an area of 11.940 square meters; It is built in grand scale combining both Chinese traditional architectural art and Islamic architectural features. The gate of the mosque is actually a decorated archway with the name of the mosque on it. One pavilion-like building of about 8 meters high stands on each side of the courtyard, and is designed for the imam to call the prayers to worship.

The main worship hall faces the east; therefore the prayers can pray facing the holy city of Mecca. Its wall is made of great cyan stones, and its roof is decorated with colored glaze. The ridge of the hall is decorated with Tibetan style Aquarius. The majestic main worship hall resembles a palace of the Han nationality. There are two-storied ambulatory-like wing halls on both sides of the main worship hall. A water hall is built in the mosque for prayers to wash their hands and feet before they enter the worship hall. Islamites worship on every Friday. Thousands of Islamites come to the mosque and religiously say prayers while facing the west.
