Qingjing Temple and Guandi Temple, two large temples of different styles and different styles, only 50 meters away, is also amazing. Quanzhou people have a saying that "you believe in your Mohammed, I worship my Guan Erye", this is what it means. It is also rare that many religions can coexist peacefully in a city and develop together. When I saw the Guandi Temple, which was full of incense, I suddenly realized that it was said that Quanzhou was a "city of light".
Quanzhou is the first national historical and cultural city. There is a clean temple in Tumen Street. The construction history can be traced back to 1009 AD. It was the Dazhong Xiangfu years of the Northern Song Dynasty.
At this time, the trade between the Great Song and the Arab world was frequent. Many Arab businessmen lived in Quanzhou or often went to Quanzhou to do business. The special needs of the faith led to the construction of the Qingjing Temple. The main building material of the
Qingzhou Qingjing Temple is stone. This material is very strong, and the general typhoon and earthquake can not cause damage.
The building is sturdy and can't be never bad. Both the Yuan and Ming dynasties had maintained the Quanzhou Qingjing Temple. During the Kangxi reign of the Qing Dynasty, they were greatly damaged by natural disasters. This exotic temple could not be restored to its original appearance.
Now inside the Qingjing Temple, you can see the restored wall and some pillars. They tell the people the long history as the historical artifacts of the vicissitudes of life. The various temples, theaters and ruins of ancient cities in Europe are no different.
Quanzhou Qingjing Temple is the oldest and largest Islamic temple in China. Its architectural style is in line with the mosque in Damascus, the capital of Syria. After a long period of time, this ancient temple still has main buildings such as the gatehouse, the worship hall, and the Mingshan Hall.

The Qingjing Temple is modeled after the Islamic Chapel in Damascus, Syria. The existing main buildings are the Gate House, the Temple of Heaven and the Mingshan Hall. The appearance of the existing very old Islamic temple gates created by Arab Muslims in China has the traditional Arabic Islamic Teaching architectural forms. The "Tiantan Temple" is a place of Muslim worship. There are only four stone walls. The roof of the altar collapsed during the Ming Dynasty, and the remains of granite remained in the open space around the temple.
