It’s a veteran temple in Nanjing. I’ve heard about it before. I’m not far from my work and I often go to purify my soul. It’s pretty good.
A very old temple, there are not too many people now.
Opposite to Exit 3 of Metro Line 1, it happened to be Ramadan when I came out. The dress I was wearing, the guard said that I was wearing too revealing. Haha~ It is said that there is a halal market on Friday morning. Jingjue Temple is the largest mosque in Nanjing. It is located at No. 28 Shengzhou Road near Sanshan Street in the south of the city. It was first built in the Ming Dynasty, and now has 2,000 square meters of buildings including the main hall, the second hall, the archway, the Wangyue Tower, the north-south lecture hall, the stele pavilion, and the water house, covering an area of 4,000 square meters. It is listed as a cultural relic protection unit in Jiangsu Province. Usually, about 500 people participate in the "zhu hemp" gathering ceremony, and more than 5,000 people participate in major festivals. It was first built in 1388 (the 21st year of Hongwu) and it was the earliest mosque in Nanjing. In 1430 (the fifth year of Xuande), Jingjue Temple was destroyed by fire. At this time, on the eve of Zheng He's seventh voyage to the West, Ming Xuanzong specially approved Zheng He's memorial to use state treasury funds to rebuild Jingjue Temple. Qing Dynasty It has been rebuilt twice, and a brick archway was built during the Jiajing period. Although the brick archway of Jingjue Temple is a contemporary reconstruction, there is still the word "Ijian" on the top to maintain the original style. The existing buildings of Jingjue Temple have courtyards, such as the Yuelou, the main hall, the apse, the Imamzhai, and the north and south lecture halls. There is a high wall behind the chapel. According to legend, it was built in the Ming Dynasty and is the tallest wall in the Nanjing temple.
Right next to the Confucius Temple, I didn’t expect it to be a traditional Chinese-style mosque built by Hongwu Emperor Zhu Yuanzhang (with a history of more than 600 years). It is a large-scale mosque and is one of the top ten mosques in China. It is a provincial cultural relics protection unit. The visit must be quiet and respect the customs of Muslim followers.
