It's quite a surprise this building. Everything looks... Chinese, in Ming style.

Without a warning, no one could imagine this site as a Muslim temple. A good exercise is to walk around, searching for signs that confirm the nature of the religious practices in place, and, discreet, they are there: In a shadowed room, the carpets oriented to Mecca wait for the prayers, and in the garden, some decorations are a Chinese interpretation of Arab decoration.

Funny!

Directions: Near Bell and Drum Towers in the centre of teh city
