You are here: Masjids (Mosques)

The Great Mosque of Guangzhou also called the Huaisheng Mosque or the Guangta Mosque is thought to be one of the oldest surviving Masaajid in China. A tomb of a Sahaba can be found not very far from the mosque. It is mentioned as the tomb of Sa'ad bin Abi Waqqas (R.A), who was one of the first persons in Mecca to announce loyalty to the Prophet (SAWS). He is said to have traveled to China to spread Islam during 581-618 CE. There are some who mention that this could be of another Sahaba.

Huaisheng Mosque is an eloquently decorated mosque and is considered one of the Guangzhou's landmarks from the early days of spreading Islam during the Tang Dynasty.
