Dongying Mosque is located at No. 1 Xiaodongying, Yuehua Road, Yuexiu District with a history of over 500 years. It was built by Muslim soldiers during the rein of Emperor Chenghua in Ming Dynasty. In the 4th year of Emperor Chenghua, the royal court sent more than 1,000 Muslim soldiers from Nanjing to Guangdong to put down the rebellion of Yao Minority. The operation succeeded and Chief Yu Shifu and Ma Mahei were awarded the title of commander in chief of Jinyiwei, an intelligence agency in Ming Dynasty. The Muslim soldiers were ordered to station in Guangdong in four barracks of Dadong Barracks, Xiaodong Barracks, Xi Barracks, and Zhutong Barracks. Dongying Mosque, Haopan Mosque and Nansheng Mosque were built near the four barracks, which existed side by side with the Huaisheng Mosque built in early Tang Dynasty.

Over the 530-plus years, Dongying Mosque has become a religious shrine for Muslims living in the neighborhood of Xiaobei. They worship Allah, preach and interpret Koran, and publish books here, advocate patriotism and harmony and promote social welfare. Since 1949, Muslims have mostly gathered at the Guangta Minaret of Huaisheng Mosque, and Xiaodongying Mosque gradually became a place to lay dead bodies and handle funerals, mainly providing funeral services to Muslim brethrens in Guangzhou. The Mosque was renovated three times by the Guangzhou Islamic Association in 1982, 1999 and 2003.  Commencing in 2005, Dongying Mosque commenced Jum'at, and the majority of the Muslims in the community of Xiaobei Road and Huanshi Road now go there for religious services.
