Ban Ho Mosque

Hedaytul Islam (Ban Ho) Mosque (Chinese: 王和清真寺; pinyin: wánghéqīngzhēnsì, Thai: มัสยิดเฮดายาตูลอิสลามบ้านฮ่อ), near the Chiang Mai Night Bazaar, is one of the biggest mosques in the province, and also one of the seven Chinese mosques in Chiang Mai.

It was first built in nineteenth century by a group of Chinese people, called Chin Ho or Hui, mostly from Yunnan Province. The present-day buildings were built later, in Arabic, rather than Chinese-style, except in front of the prayer hall, where there is the Chinese phrase, "清真寺" or qingzhensi, which means a mosque (literally 'temple of purity and truth').
