<p>Hangzhou Phoenix Mosque is one of the four greatest mosques in the coastal area of Southeast China. Hangzhou Phoenix Mosque is also called Zhenjiao Mosque. Hangzhou Phoenix Mosque was built in the Tang Dynasty (618-907), and was ruined in the Song Dynasty (960-1279). In 1281, Hangzhou Phoenix Mosque was reconstructed again on its original site. Hangzhou Phoenix Mosque was repaired and expanded during the period from 1451 to 1493 in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), the current complex of the Phoenix Mosque was formed.<br /> <br /> In 1929, the gate and the five-storied wooden minaret on the top of the gate were removed because of the city construction, seriously damaging the overall image of the mosque. Later Hangzhou Phoenix Mosque underwent several reconstructions. <br /> <br /> At present, Hangzhou Phoenix Mosque covers an area of about 2,600 square meters, and consists of the entrance hall, the auditorium and the prayer hall, etc. The prayer hall of Hangzhou Phoenix Mosque was built without any girder during the Yuan Dynasty.
