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