Islamic Holy Tombs

 Quanzhou Attractions

They are to be found at the southern foot of Mount Lingshan outside the East Gate of Quanzhou. According to The Book of Fujian, four disciples of Mohammed, the founder of Islam, came to preach in China. The third and fourth disciples were buried in Mount Lingshan after death. Their tombs are two of the oldest, best-preserved holy resting places in the Muslim world.

The Islamic Holy Tombs on Mt. Ling is the best preserved and the oldest existing Islamic site in China. Both of the covers of the tombs are sculpted in granite. In front of the tombs is a huge stone that wobbles when the wind blows or when people push it slightly. There are U-shaped cloisters about 3 meters (10 feet) high at the rear of the tombs. Here one can see five steles and several prism-like stone columns reflecting the style of the Tang Dynasty. Among the steles, one is made from dolerite and it records the coming of the two disciples to China.
