Mosques in Lhasa

There are two mosques in Lhasa: The Large Mosque is located in the Hebalin area east of Jokhang Monastery, and the Small Mosque lies in Rase Lane south of the monastery. The Large Mosque covered only approximately 200 square meters when it was first built in 1716 or the 55th year of the reign of Qing Dynasty Emperor Kangxi. After 1793 it was repaired and expanded, and now covers an area of 1,300 square meters. Above the north-facing gate hangs a a horizontal board inscribed with three words meaning “mosque.” The mosque is centered on a prayer hall which faces east and covers an area of 285 square meters. On the western wall is a tapestry depicting Mecca, and against the northern wall is a stage for the imam. Xuanli Pavilion, also known as Bangke Pavilion, is the major pavilion in the mosque. Those conducting prayers enter the pavilion to call all followers of Islam to pray at the appointed times.

The Small Mosque was built in the 1920s for Muslims from Kashmir, Laddak and Southeast Asian count5ries who conduct business or travel to Lhasa. There are two Muslim tombs at Dodi Mountain Gully in the northern suburbs and at Gyical Luding in the western suburbs. Muslims residing in or visiting Lhasa are thus able to pursue their religious life in the city.
