This is a well preserved place for the local history. The architect of the minaret is unique and the layout of religious building and environment is great for visitors to move around leisurely.

I spent only 30 mins here. This place was full of history, but nothing much here. It is build to celebrate Emin Khoja. Just come and spend some time if you have enough time in Turpan.

This site does not take long so it's worth dropping by. The brickwork is beautiful, show casing Uyghur architecture. We were not allowed into the Mosque when we went, so it only took us less than 15mins to take some photos outside.

This minaret is truly beautiful in its architecture. I was glad we went with a guide as there didn't appear to be much information about the site. The mosque is still a place of worship. Worth a visit.

Very interesting minaret for sure but the site doesnt take 30 minutes of viewing time. Located out close to some grape vines. so maybe a little lunch under the grapes and a quick visit to the minaret

This old minaret attached to a mosque is very interesting with carvings on the stone. Its located outside of town but easy to get to.
