At first glance, with its traditional Chinese architecture and the choice of colours, one might not recognize this place as mosque. However, once inside, you would be welcomed to the house of the Almighty Allah as if you were at the comfort of your own home.

The design of the mosques in Beijing (or in China) is something you will not see anywhere else. However, if you have seen a mosque in Melaka by the name Tengkera Mosque (picture below), you will find that there are similarities with the structure of the mosques in Beijing, especially the pagoda-shaped tower and the roof. So what can you infer from this? Now I have to google for some more information.
