Tomb of the famous princess

Tomb in the Tomb of Apak Hoja, Kashgar, Xinjiang Autonomous Region, China

On the tomb is written in Uyghur "Iparhan". Iparhan is considered by many Uyghurs as a Uyghur woman hero. There are controversies around this historic figure. The Chinese historians call her Xing Fei (Fragrant Lady) and consider her as Manchu Emperor Qienlung's concubine, which is insulting to the Muslim Uyghurs.

According to Muslim law, a Muslim woman cannot marry a non-Muslim man. For this reason, the Uyghurs would consider it blasphemous for a Uyghur woman to be the consort of the Chinese emperor.
