From 487 to 541 AD Turfan was ruled by a Turkish tribe
called Gaoche. But because of it’s importance and popularity as
a major trade center along the Silk Road the Han Dynasty and
Mongolians both wanted to take over the area. And in the early
9th century the Turks lost Turfan to the Tang who also used Turfan
as a major commercial center.
It’s best to get to it by traveling on the Silk Road by camel caravan because the Silk Road is an established route & the city is right on it. Also, off the route it is much harder journey because of the harsh and dangerous steppes, deserts, and oases of Central Asia.
The architecture really varies in Turfan
because of all the different groups of
controlled it. It was
passed on a lot and
so it was influenced
by many things. Just
some are Uygur,
Muslim, and Turkish.
The Bezeklik thousand Buddha caves, east of Turfan, include 83 caves with over 50% of the caves covered in murals.
