Abakh Hoja Tomb, Kashi

3.9
#1 of 8 in Historic Sites in Kashi
The intricately decorated Islamic structure of Abakh Hoja Tomb provides visitors with perhaps the finest example of its kind in the region. Adorned with vividly glazed, patterned tiles, four domed minarets (each with windows bearing a different geometric pattern), and a large 56 ft (17 m) wide dome at its center, the structure was built in the mid-17th century. It originally served as the tomb of Central Asian Naqshbandi Sufi master Muhammad Yūsuf, and was used by the subsequent generations of his Afaqi lineage. Within the structure, you can view the tombs of 72 royals, each draped with a colorful silken cloth.
