Niujie Mosque

Niujie Mosque is the largest and oldest mosque that can be found in Beijing. The majestic mosque is also world famous that every day the mosque is attracting Muslim pilgrims home and abroad to travel and visit here. It is located in the center of Xuanwu District, and is the spiritual centre for the 10,000 Muslims living in the vicinity. Basically, Niujie is equivalent to Muslim for the local inhabitants due to the mosques and Islamic food and costums. It's rebuilt in 1442 in the Ming Dynasty and expanded in 1696 under Qing Emperor Kangxi.
The Mosque was first built in 996 during the Liao Dynasty when the local Muslim community was forbidden from constructing the mosque in a style other than traditional Chinese architecture, with the expectation that the use of Arabic calligraphy was allowed. If without the muslims praying in the mosque, it's easy to mistake it for any other Chinese temple. The Mosque is one of the major mosques in North China covering an area of approximately 6000 square meters with the construction area of 3000 square meters.
