The Emin Minaret and Mosque in Turpan, Xingiang Province, China.
Built out of wood and brick, the Emin Minaret is the tallest in China and was the first stop on my trip out to Xinjiang for the Chinese National Holiday.
The architecture was a nice fusion of Islamic and Chinese styles. And being so far away from the rest of the major cities, there were barely any tourists by Chinese standards.
Turpan is the main tourist stop in the area despite being a small town. The hotel was probably the worst on the whole trip, but we survived and I don’t have any rashes… so i guess I really can’t complain.
