It is a spectacular sight indeed, as the hall is capable of holding up to 1000 people. The hall looks splendid in green and gold, with elegant decorations and exquisite coloring. In the mosque, 60 tablets and couplets written in Arabic and Chinese characters are hung in the main hall and most of them are the works of masters’ craftsmen and artists.
