Over the course of the years maintaining the enchanting tile work on this stunning mausoleum has been accomplished- among other things- by using different patterned ceramic tiles available to the workers at the time. The result is a brilliant palimpsest of color and pattern reflecting materials and styles of the times. The serious student of regional art history will have... More

It is divided up into 4 areas, the Family Mausoleum, the Everyday Mosque, the Medrasa and the Friday Mosque, They are all designed and built in Uyghar style. There is also a normal Muslim cemetery close by. All in good shape and worth a visit. Still... More

It was a memorial tomb, not much to see. However the architecture of the tomb is worth seeing, its unique. As it was not very big you can spend 1/2 an hour visiting the whole area.

If you love Disney Land you will not like this. Very interesting from architectural point of view. Interesting historic story. Especially the old tiles outside worth a detailed exploration. Go there early when not so many tourists are there. Take your time to recognize the small details.

A bus can take you there from the old town, so it is easy to get there. The main building is a mausoleum and a beautiful piece of Islamic architecture. There are 3 other buildings that you can see, very different from each other. It is unfortunate that you cannot enter the other buildings and some others are closed. The... More

The mausoleum was nice and provided a wonderful history of a man who had an impact locally but where he lived abroad.

The most interesting is about the local burial practice without names on the stone. The whole park is under construction and we need to walk 15 minutes to the front door under 90 degree temperature. My friend almost had a heat stroke. Beware traveling in summer.

Well worth a visit. The tombs of the royal family, mosque and the commoners cemetery of old Kashgar are some of the few remaining sites that must be seen.
