Bazaar & Mosque

sights / Religious

Lonely Planet review

Every Friday a large bazaar is held about 2.5km west of town, next to a bridge on Renmin Lu. It's nothing to rival Kashgar's, but is free of tour buses. A small mosque (清真寺; Qīngzhēn Sì) 150m further west draws a throng of worshippers on Friday afternoon. North of here through the old town is an awesome but less animated Great Mosque .

To get here from the new town, take buses 1 or 3 from Tianshan Lu.
