The oldest mosque in China. Established 742.
“Pit 1” is the building with the big terracotta army.

Also known as the “Forest of Stone Steles.” A stele is basically an engraved stone. They sell carbon prints for you to take home – you know like when you were a kid and you colored with crayon on a piece of paper over a bumby surface and it made an imprint – that kinda thing.
