Ha Er Jia shi Fortress Scenic Spot
As an A-level national scenic spot, Ha Er Jia Shi Fortress Scenic Spot is in the southwest of Yarkand, about 35 kilometers from the downtown. Geographically, it is not only the portal of the ancient Silk Road but also the entrance to the downtown Yarkand and the major route of transportation into Pakistan and Afghanistan. Built in 1877 during the years of Emperor Guangxv of Qing Dynasty, it was originally used to counterattack the Yakubbae invasion and also functioned as a lookout tower. Even nowadays, it still stands there with its well-kept appearance, making an eye-catching and mysterious figure.
