"okay" modern architecture integrated into the old town


on the other side of the wall things look very different, as there is no height restriction for the architects

This looks very old, in fact it's not


A typical Chinese tourist street to lure travellers into souvenir shops


at least the style is integrated well into the city's outlook and hte temple in the background seems to be unique

The tower was built in 1384 by Emperor Zhu Yuanzhang as a way to dominate the surrounding countryside and provide early warning of attack by rival rulers.

btw, the mosque we are talking about is one og the biggest in China, based in the muslim district of Xi'an.


It was erected in the 8th century and was destroyed thereafter. the current buildings datem from the 18th century. Its architecture is completely adapted to Chinese style except the inscription shown above.
