Abakh Hoja Tomb, Kashi

3.9
#1 of 7 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. Make Abakh Hoja Tomb a centerpiece of your Kashi vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Kashi tourist route planner.

    "The concubine" just rumors, the actual burial was Islamic scholar. Mosque at the entrance. The building has strong Islamic style. Small in size, after more than 10 minutes to ramble about.

    Beautiful mausoleum is framed in a small complex with a mosque and a madrasa and gardens. It is a quiet and shady place.

Where to stay in Kashi

For traditional ambiance and a taste of Uyghur culture, look to the old town when searching for accommodations in Kashi. Dotted throughout the historical district, you can find small, intimate guesthouses and inns, as well as youth hostels offering shared dormitories. Head just outside the bounds of the old town and you'll see a range of larger, Western-style hotels offering comfortable rooms with all the expected amenities.
