Tomb, Cemetery sights in Southern Silk Road
- Sort by:
About 10km beyond Jíyàxiāng lie an interesting cemetery and the Imam Asim(Tomb of Four Imams), reached by a paved road. It's a popular pilgrimage site, particularly during the month of May. The cemetery lies on the edge of the Taklamakan Desert, so coming out here is a good opportunity to enjoy the desert scenery and slide down the sand dunes. The best day to visit is Thursday, when a festive market springs up by the roadside, about 2km before the tomb.
