Where is this?
The old buildings in pics 1 and 4 are amazing. Is the first one a Bhuddist temple and the second a Mosque? I've never seen a Mosque like that before, it's fascinating.

This city has some really funky lighting, the lamp posts in the last two pics are really cool!

Inner Mongolia is part of China while Mongolia is a separate country, well, it is a long history, it used to be part of China.

The temple with the five pagodas is really nice, but the surrounding is horrible with all the cheap shops and socialist-style buildings is horrible. The big temple below is Dazao Lama Temple. It is being restored right now, I think.

The first one is indeed a Bhuddist temple however the second one is a typical Chinese ancient building...

Well, it's good to show how different the two Mongolias are now and at least, Mongolian separatists are the least among Tibetan, Uyghurs and Mongolian...

Also shows US democracy is not a solution for anyone... OH, by the way Chinese mongalian are more than Outer Mongalians...

I'm sure it's a mosque, look there are crescents on the tips of the towers and the one on the right looks like a minaret (although a Chinese style one).
Also, I'm sure that's arabic writing on the gate (the top cross beam just under the roof). It's really interesting if this is a Chinese style mosque.

Because they're Chinese Muslims perhaps... Seems pretty obvious to me, there are traditional Chinese style Churches, why not Mosques?

Yeah, I think Andrew is right.
The city still looks very underdeveloped considering it is a provincial capital. It reminds me of a normal Chinese city in the 90s.

Mongolians are BUddhists, not Muslims.
That arabic writing is Mongolian.

It is one of the big mosques in inner mongolia. Hui muslim is another ethnical group next to mongolians in hohhot. Many Chinese mosques are characteristic of Chinese architecture. There is a splendid and biggest one in Xi'an which looks like a garden inside.

There are thousands of Chinese-style mosques in China. I am surprised at your naive question.

Whatever mongolian or Chinese writing it is , it means "Qingzhen";"清真";"Islamic food". Looking closely, there is a half-moon on top of that pavillion. Outside, a Hui guy on a white hat just came out of the mosque.

Look carefully at the Mongolian script to the left on the green banner and the Arabic script on the red gate... they are clearly two different languages.

Mongolian is written top down, while Arabic is right to left.

"The arabic writing is Mongolian" is wrong because it isn't arabic writing, but Mongolian. In middle, I believe there is an arabic symbol indicating" Islamic". On both sides, it is mongolian writing. It is quite common that in mongolia and Tibet, the owners of Hui restaurants use two languages showing "qingzhen" in order that non-Hui people visit them. In other cities, they simply use chinese and one arabic symbol " islamic" outside of restaurants.

ok first thing first, when I said Arabic writing, I meant Arabic looking writing, Andrew probably doesnt know Mongolian script looks similar to Arabic script, so I was explaing to him.

Second, Ohno, I dont know where you are referring to, but I just noticed, on the gate there are 4 Chinese characters, read from righ to left "Qing Zhen Da Si"清真大寺,or Great Temple of Islam. (literally). So I suppose after all this indeed a mosque.
