A group of Kuwaiti high schools students paid a visit to a cultural centre in China's autonomous Ningxia Hui region, during a trip organised by Kuwait Fund for Arab Economic Development on Sunday.
The honour students were taken on a tour throughout the Institute of Hui Islamic Studies at Ningxia Academy of Social Sciences, which is distinguished by its Islamic architecture.
The structure, which provides cultural and academic services to around 480 students, was built in 1962 and acts as a beacon for the Muslim Hui ethnic people who predominantly reside in the northwestern region.
It provides courses in Arabic language, Islamic studies, literature and Chinese history, and the Arab visitors were impressed with the cultural insight the centre offers into the faith of Islam in China.
Mohammad Dashti told KUNA he was amazed by the Islamic inscriptions he had witnessed throughout the building, while Abdullatif Al-Mahmeed hailed the teaching method applied at the centre in showcasing Islam through the Arabic language.
Meanwhile, Ministry of Education official Mubarak Al-Otaibi applauded the trip as an opportunity for the youngsters to get a first-hand view of different cultures.
