Dongguan Mosque   

First built in 1379, the Dongguan Mosque is located at Dongguan Street, and it was rebuilt in 1946. Since the founding of new China in 1949, the mosque has been revamped several times. Encompassing 11,940 square meters with the worshipping hall being 1,102 square meters, the mosque is the largest one in Qinghai Province. In 1988, it was approved as the mosque with the most prayers in the whole country by The Islamic Association of China.

The mosque serves as an educational center and institution of higher learning for Islamism, and also is the leading mosque in Qinghai. All the worshipping ceremonies for Moslems in Northwest China are held here.
