Turpan’s Green Mosque

The main street is full of mosques, one after the other, and this photo is a close up of the entrance and two central minarets to ‘the green mosque’.

4-6% of China’s population (i.e. 40-60 million) are Muslim. Amongst other things Turpan is famous in China for its grapes, and is home to the annual grape festival.
