The history of Islam in Taiwan dates back to around the 17th century. The country is home to a small Muslim population and travellers to Taiwan will be able to find sufficient facilities including quite a few mosques. Read on for more information about mosques in Taiwan. Islam first arrived in Taiwan when the Kingdom of Tungning was established in Taiwan by the Ming Chinese military leader Koxinga along with Muslim families from the Chinese province of Fujian.

At present Taiwan is home to over 60,000 Muslims, with Islam being a growing religion in the country. The country is also home to a very large number of employed foreign Muslims from South East Asian countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Philippines. Taiwan is home to a total of seven prominent mosques that cater to the sizable Muslim community residing in the country - Taipei Grand Mosque, Kaohsiung Mosque, Taipei Cultural Mosque, Taichung Mosque, Longgang Mosque, Tainan Mosque and At-Taqwa Mosque.
