Xi'an has a large Muslim group. We know that Muslim street is a great place to eat halal food and to worship in the mosque. All the shops here are operated and run by the local Chinese Muslim community, most of them are from the Hui ethnic group, so it's the best place to immerse yourself in the local culture of Xi'an's thriving Chinese Muslim community. So today let's have a look at some best-preserved places to pray for Muslims.

我们知道,回民街是西安非常有名的美食打卡地,其实除了各色各样的美食,这里还是6万多回族穆斯林群众的聚居区,众多街道具有浓郁的伊斯兰风格,还有很多年代不一、大小各异的清真寺。今天小编就带大家来看看回民街里几座主要的清真寺~

Great Mosque of Xi'an

大清真寺

 

When people talk about mosque, minaret is the very first thought that comes to mind. However, unlike most mosques in Middle East or Arab countries, the Great Mosque of Xi'an is completely Chinese in its construction and architectural style, except for some Arabic lettering and decorations, for the mosque has neither domes nor traditional-style minarets. Great Mosque of Xi'an combined Islamic culture with Chinese traditional architecture seamlessly and became one of the most featured and renowned mosques in China.

The mosque is also known as the Huajue Mosque (Chinese: 化觉巷清真寺; pinyin: Huàjué Xiàng Qīngzhēnsì), for its location on Huajue Lane. It is sometimes called the Great Eastern Mosque (Chinese: 东大寺; pinyin: Dōng Dàsì) as well, because it sits east of another Xi’an’s oldest mosques, Daxuexi Alley Mosque (Chinese: 大学习巷清真寺; pinyin: Dàxuéxí Xiàng Qīngzhēnsì).

我们常见的清真寺从外观看就有很明显的特点,一般是石材砌成,具有伊斯兰风格,大圆顶的礼拜殿很醒目。但西安大清真寺是一座中国古典建筑与伊斯兰教建筑风格完美结合的中国殿式古建筑群。西安大清真寺在老城区西大街的化觉巷,这一区域也叫回坊,是西安回民最集中的地方,保留着好几座伊斯兰教清真寺。这座是最大的,也是西安最早的一座清真寺。

化觉巷的这座清真寺是西安规模最大,保存最完整,历史最悠久的清真寺,也叫西安清真大寺、大清真寺、东大寺。
