The Tomb Of The Fragrant Concubine, Kashgar – Cycling The Silk Road In China

Apakh Hoja Tomb (or Xiangfei Tomb)

This Tomb was built in 1640.
Seventy-two family members (five generations) of a Sufi family were buried here.

According to a legend, Iparhan, granddaughter of Apak Khoja was given to the Chinese emperor Qianlong, as a concubine.

She was called Xiangfei (fragrant Imperial Concubine in Chinese) because of the rich delicate fragrance of flowers that her body emanated naturally.
