The City of Yar is the largest earth built city in the world. The city stands on a leaf shared island protected by a divided river system. The river has left the island with high natural cliffs. The city has only one entrance at the south. The main street runs north south dividing the city into 3 sections. In the north the temple area, to the west the commercial section of markets ...

Unfortunately he didn't leave very much for us to see, but we could still see where the wall paintings had been as well as the bottom foot or so, along with the ceiling paintings.

40 hours from Turpan to Kashgar

A travel blog entry by dodging_cholera
