Abakh Khoja was thre ruler of Kashgar in the 17th century. All five generations of his family were buried within. Among those tombs the Xiangfei Tomb is the well-known one because there’s a legend about her. She was the grand-daughter of Abakh Khoja and concubine of Emperor Qianlong of the Qing period. She was called Xiangfei because of the delicate fragrance from her body. After her death her coffin was brought back to Kashgar(the trip took 3 years) and buried there.
