A Mosque that survived the destroying forces - but very ruined in fact. It is 1000 years old and it's quite fascinating because completly un-chinese. It offers the possibility to dream about the ancient harbour of Quanzhou when it was the starting point of the maritime silk road.
A little museum details the history of Islam in Quanzhou.
When you wander the ruins you'll notice an amusing chinese-islamic architectural mix.

Address: On Tumen Jie
