Mazha Tomb is the first ancient religious relic you will see in the south mouth of the Tuyugou Canyon. It is a tomb of ancient saints. The Mazha Toms has a histore of more than 1300 years. Back to the 7th century when Mohammed created Islam, his six disciples came to China to preach their religion. They had been through a harsh and tough trip and finally gotten to Tugugou Canyon. With the help of the local sheepherder, they lived there for a long time and did a very good job on publicizing Islam. After the sheepherder died, the six Islam disciples buried him at the cave. It is now called the Mazha Tomb. There are records in a Germany explorers’ book that even in the early 20th century Moslems still went to the Mazha Tomb and worship. They were from Turkey, India and other countries. Nowadays Moslems from Xinjiang, Ningxing, Qinghai, Gansu, Turkey, Hongkong and Macao come to the Mazha Tomb every year. It is a very important holy land for Islam in Xinjiang. It is also called China’s Mekka.  Before Moslems at the Tuyugou Crayon go to worship at Mekka, they come to Mazha Tomb first.

During the Tang Dynasty (618-907), there were great progresses on Buddhism wall paintings in the Tuyugou Grottoes. It was into a new era. The book ‘Xizhou Paintings’ in the Tang Dynasty recorded that the Tuyugou Grottoes at the time was a fairy land. The describes at the book are as followed:There are numerous temples in the Tuyugou Crayon. Back in the temples are usually steep peaks. In front of the temples are always clean waters. Big green trees are around the temples and monasteries. More than 1700 years can be divided into two periods. The first period is that the Tuyugou Grottoes were destroyed by human movements. The second period is that the grotto was ruined by natural disasters. Nowadays there are 96 Grottoes with only eight of them keeping wall paintings. There existed paintings show ancient civilization to the public and still attract experts and scholars from different countries to visit the Tuyugou Canyon and do researches. There researches and fruits provide immeasurable vales of history and art. The ancient name for the Thousand-Buddha Cave was Dinggu Temple which is the earliest temple in the Turpan area. The Tuyugou Grottoes’ most prosperous time was between the year 443 and 450. 90 percent of the wall paintings were robbed and taken when imperialism countries invaded China. The No.1, No.2, No.3 and No.4 Grottoes still keep the wall paintings of Uighur scripts.
