Dongguan Mosque (Chinese: 东关清真寺; pinyin: Dōngguān Qīngzhēnsì) is a mosque in Xining, Qinghai Province, China. It is the largest mosque in Qinghai.


Restored recently, it was originally built in 1380 and has colorful white arches along the outside of the wide building. It has a green and white dome and two tall minarets.[1]

Generals Ma Qi and Ma Bufang controlled the Great Dongguan Mosque when they were military governors of Qinghai.[2]
