Nanjing Jizhaoying Mosque covers an area of 815.1 square meters. Although there are no written record about the exact time when the mosque was built, it is believed that the mosque was constructed in the middle of the Qing Dynasty.
The ancient mosque was once burned when Taiping Heavenly Kingdom (1853-1864) came in power. However, it still strived functioning effectively. The religious activities last for decades under very difficult circumstances.
In the beginning of the Republic of China, some celebrities raised money and rebuilt the prayer hall in 1912. In 1987, the Urban Islamic Association in Nanning invested 30,000 yuan to repair the mosque. Today the old mosque still functions well.
