The hub of Xi'an’s Hui (Chinese Muslim) community, the Muslim Quarter is an intriguing labyrinth of old streets just north of the Drum Tower. The Grand Mosque at its heart was built in the 10th century, when the Islam religion arrived with the merchants of the Silk Road, of which Xian is the eastern terminus. The population has expanded markedly over the centuries, there are 7 mosques now, and keeping many cultural traditions that you can still see as you wander through today.
The main streets of the quarter are lined with Ming and Qing-style architecture, and full of butchers shops and sesame oil factories. Entering the narrower, more winding alleyways, you’ll find markets brimming with souvenirs manned by women in colourful head scarves and, more importantly, food! To the local people of Xi'an, the Muslim Quarter is the place to head for a snack, so we would advise you to do the same. Visit at night for an even more atmospheric experience.
