The Tomb of Mahmud Kashagari is located about 45 km southwest of Kashgar. The area is a wooded, tranquil place against the backdrop of the Karakoram Mountains. His Tomb has existed for 900 years, and as it was renovated in 1985. The buildings are in quite good condition nowadays. Newly built next to the Tomb is a small Mosque where Muslim travelers and local villagers can pray. Attached to the north side of the Tomb is a small museum with an exhibition covering Kashagari's lifetime and scholarly works. Also near the Tomb is a small spring next to a huge, ancient poplar tree. The area is a nice spot to stop for a half-day trip. Also, if you are going to places further along the highway like Karakuri Lake, this is a good place to stop on the way back.
