The Phoenix Mosque in Hangzhou 杭州凤凰清真寺

The Phoenix Mosques is one of the three oldest monques in China, the other three being the Huaisheng Mosque in Guangzhou, Ashab Mosque in Quanzhou and Xiahe Mosque in Yangzhou. The original name of the Phoenix Mosque, also known as the Libai Mosque, is the Zhenjiao Mosque. Its present name comes from the former complex of buildings that looked like a phoenix. The mosque is located where Zhongshan Zhonglu and Xihu Dadao cross, and it was first built in the Tang Dynasty (AD 618–626). It was renovated many times during the Ming and Qing Dynasties, and then underwent a total renovation in 1953. The current major hall remains from the Yuan Dynasty. This hall covers 2600 square metres and its structure consists of bricks. On the left of the mosque is a corridor that exhibits steles.
