Qingjing Mosque

China, an East Asian country is one of the world’s oldest civilizations. It has a vast cultural history of more than five thousand years and an outstanding natural beauty. On the other hand, this country has remained a comparatively isolated and secluded one, and being a land of mystery, this country is not known to the western half of the world. However, China is rapidly developing and has grown in the phase of modernization, with an immense speed and is also welcoming the outer world to interact and do business with them.
Qingjing Mosque is one of the major tourist attractions in China and is admired for its cultural related notion. This mosque is located on the Tumen Street and was built in the Northern Song dynasty which lasted from 960 to 1127 AD. It is also one of the oldest mosques in China and stretches over an area of 2,100 square meters.
Qingjing Mosque is completely constructed from granite and is an exact copy of a mosque in Damascus in Syria. There are three gates that defend the mosque’s grand main entrance which is 20 meters high and 4.5 meters wide. The niches in the exterior of the south wall of the altar are inscribed with Arabic passages from the Koran. There is also an exhibition hall behind the mosque that offers some additional information about the development of Islam in Quanzhou.
Even though Qingjing Mosque meant the partial loss of its tourist profile due to urbanization, some features of its past times of splendor still remain. It also enjoys a very positive reputation with worldwide travelers, and is one of the most visited places in China.
