Hami, also known as Kumul, is a prefecture-level city in eastern Xinjiang, People's Republic of China. It is well known as the home of sweet Hami melons. In early 2016, the former Hami county-level city was merged with Hami Prefecture to form Hami prefecture-level city. The former Hami is now known as Yizhou District.Hami is the first city to be reached for travellers exiting Gansu province.NamesThe city is known in Uyghur as Qumul or Qomul. "Camul" appeared on European maps in the 16th century, and Matteo Ricci in his account of the Portuguese Jesuit Benedict Goës visit to the city in 1605 used the same spelling as well.One of the oldest attested Chinese names is Kūnmò 昆莫; in Han-dynasty documents it was referred to as Yīwú 伊吾 or Yīwúlú 伊吾卢, in the Tang dynasty as Yīzhōu 伊州; in the Yuan dynasty the Mongolian name for the place, Qamil, was transcribed into Chinese as Hāmìlì 哈密力 and from the Ming dynasty Qumul was known as Hāmì 哈密. The Yīwúlú toponym also appears as 伊吾廬 in the History of the Yuan Dynasty, the biographies of which include references to the place using both names: Baurchuk Art Tekin 巴而朮阿而忒的斤 bases his troops at Hāmìlì in juan 122, while one Tabun 塔本 is recorded as being a man of Yīwúlú in juan 124.
