Brief introduction:

The Tomb of the King of Shache was first built in 1533 (during the reign of Emperor Jiajing of the Ming Dynasty). Many kings were buried here in historical sequence. However, the most well-known person who was buried here was a princess, the famous poet and musician, Amannisha, who had composed Twelve Mukam. Her significant achievement contributed to the glorious culture of China. Its musical art is unique in human history. On May 20, 2006, the Twelve Mukam was listed in the first batch of National Intangible Cultural Heritage by the State Council of China.

The tomb covers an area of 1050 square meters, and though there has been damage over the past hundreds of years, the wall decoration and the structure are in good shape. In recent years, the local government and residents built a new tomb specifically for Princess Amannisha. It is much taller than the original tomb. So far numerous visitors have come to pay their respects to the princess.
