What people are saying:

"The architectural form and the tone of the temple are Chinese ethnic styles, however, all the decorations in the temple are strictly in accordance with the Islamic system. The algae and cranberry ornaments in the temple are all made up of Arabic engravings, and the traditional Chinese architecture and Islamic architecture are so harmoniously combined." It is a remarkable thing that UNESCO has been listed as one of the Islamic cultural relics in the world.
