Turpan Jiaohe Ruins

jiaohe-ruins01 The ancient city of Turpan Jiaohe was first built by the people of Jushi during the time span from the 2nd century BC to the middle of the 5th century AD.

The whole city stretches about 1650 meters from south to north, and 300 meters from east to west. It was initially built about 2000 years ago and for a long period of time, was controlled by the residents of Gaochang.


Today, this is a well-preserved site and an atmospheric spot to wander and imagine times-gone-by. Well-preserved temples, pagodas, and streets are dotted around. A Buddhist monastery marks the center of the city and there are some ancient wells here too. The crumbling, sand-colored walls of the buildings reflect the color of the desert and the surrounding sand dunes. Allow at least one hour for exploring this intriguing city.
