    At present, Guilin Chongshan Road mosque covers an area of 2000 square meters, as the best preserved mosque with the largest scale in Guilin. A full set of architecture, including the prayer hall, lecture hall, Wudu facilities and so on. The Arabic on the left side of the transept means Allah is the greatest and most respected, and those on the right side means to open the door of auspiciousness and kindness. 24 red pillars surround the prayer hall, making it simple but solemn. A large inscribed board with Arabic is hung in the upper room of the outer house. Antithetical couplets are pasted on the golden pillars on both sides.
