Grand Mosque,located in the very donwtown of Xi’an,in which the local moslems are centralized.Different from the typical mosque,the grand mosque has no round domes reaching to the sky,no minerit,which looks like a Chinese garden with pretty wooden arch,pavillions and towers.Walking inside the mosque,you may come cross the local moslems wearing the little round white hat since it’s still functioned.After the visit to the mosque,exploring in the very alive moslim quarters will be another highlight in Xi’an.You may see the local moslems cooking the street food like kababs and pickled beef ,selling the dried friut and 100% knock off staff,and you will get into the real life of the local people .
