In Year 2011, I visited a Islamic maqbara in Shanghai (Puxi area) and had the opportunity to listen in on their Friday prayers. A maqbara is a tomb. In YuYuan, there is a historical mosque. Muslims too were present in Old Shanghai. From India, Bohras and Ismailis made their mark but left no tracks. That’s how it is with Old Shanghai. Faded histories.
