Visit to the Guiyang Mosque 贵阳的清真寺

This beautiful Islamic Mosque is in central Guiyang about a block and a half from  Penshuichi  (address: No. 35 Xiazhuangyuan Jie 夏状元街35号, in an alley near the intersection of Yan’an Road 延安路 and Hequn Road 合群路, around the corner to the north of Pizza Fun). A couple of halal restaurants are also in this alley.

The green domed structure with Islamic crescent moon and star on its top is a large new building in front of the original mosque built some 300 years ago.  Guiyang has about 10,000 Muslims.  Services on Friday afternoon are open to the general public.
