Guilin Ancient Mosque

Category: Guilin City

Firstly built in the early years of Yuan Dynasty, Guilin Ancient Mosque covers an area of 5669 square meters. It is located along the Taohuajiang River in Guilin.

The mosque underwent collapse in wars and was rebuilt in the middle years of Ming Dynasty. During the Anti-Japanese War, the Ancient Mosque was burned by Japanese in 1944. Fortunately, Muslims in Guilin began to raise funds for the reconstruction after 1945 and the prayer hall and some auxiliary houses were built in combined efforts in 1947.

The Ancient Mosque gained great respect and protection of the people’s government during the War of Liberation and was renovated. After 1979, under the advocating of the Islam Association of the city, a start-up group responsible for the reconstruction of the mosque was founded and soon they began to raise funds. At present, there are about 4500 Muslims living in the community of Guilin Ancient Mousque, all of whom are Hui Nationality.
