Phoenix Pavilion at Great Mosque of Xi’an, China

The fourth courtyard of the Great Mosque features the Phoenix Pavilion shown here. On the opposite side is the Prayer Hall. The 14,000 square foot, wooden hall consists of three connected structures. It can accommodate up to 1,000 worshipers. Prayer services are conducted five times a day. You must be Muslim to enter. There are nine other mosques in the city. Yet none compare to the Great Mosque of Xi’an.
