The Perfumed Palace
Islam’s Journey from Mecca to Peking

The Perfumed Palace: Islam’s Journey from Mecca to Peking is a tapestry of words and pictures portraying one of the oldest and most distinctive Islamic communities in the world: the Muslims of Peking. While it is not widely known, Islam first arrived in China in the 7th century CE and rapidly became an integral part of China’s social fabric. By 996 CE, Muslims had established a presence in Beijing (which we call “Peking” because of its classical resonance), and so began a process of blending so far-reaching that today, casual observers of northern China, whether Chinese, Muslim or Western, might be completely unaware of their existence.
