Wow, I loved Xian! it was the most beautiful place, filled with Muslims, mashaAllah, and yummy halaal restaurants in the area surrounding the grand mosque!
The Xian grand Masjid was definitely spectacular mashaAllah.
The inside is so serene, and the gardens surrounding it are so tranquil. You'd never know theres a busy bustling bazaar just outside the gates! Its a beautiful example of chinese muslim architecture... and the people are so kind mashaAllah.
Enjoy your studies there, and post more pics when you have time.
