The Dongguan Mosque(西宁东关清真大寺) is a famous mosque. It is located in eastern Xiling City, and is the largest mosque in Qinghai province and one of the four greatest mosques in Northwest China. First built in 1379 during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), the mosque enjoys a long history of more than 600 years and still remains the most well preserved ancient building. 

 Architecture of the mosque combines traditional Chinese style with the local features, with grand appearance and delicate, dazzlingly inside ornaments. Now this mosque serves as an educational center and institution of higher learning for Islamism, and also is the leading mosque in Qinghai.
