Mosques in Lhasa

 

Tibet is often considered a Buddhist region and is the main religion of Tibetans. However, there is a significant Muslim population which can be found in Lhasa. The earliest record of Islam in Tibet can be traced back to almost 1000 years where Arab traders arrived in the 8th century. As more Arab traders arrived in Lhasa the Muslim community further expanded in particularly in the Kashmir area located in the west of Tibet during the 12th century. 

 

The first mosque in Tibet was built during the reign of Kangxi in 1716, during the Qing Dynasty. This mosque is known as Lhasa Great Mosque. In 1793 the mosque was expanded due to the number of Muslim soldiers located in Lhasa.
