This Minaret is simple in design but pretty. They can tell the time via sunlight into the minaret. Outside there is a cemetery and garden. Plenty of photo opportunities. There is also a plaque where one side is in Arabic where it is pray to...More

No public transportation. Around 2km from the city center. Around 45 RMB per person (a little bit too expensive for this kind of attraction). Tourists can walk around and enter the building next to the Minaret, however cannot walk up the Minaret. Still an interesting...More

This is a well preserved place for the local history. The architect of the minaret is unique and the layout of religious building and environment is great for visitors to move around leisurely.

I spent only 30 mins here. This place was full of history, but nothing much here. It is build to celebrate Emin Khoja. Just come and spend some time if you have enough time in Turpan.

This site does not take long so it's worth dropping by. The brickwork is beautiful, show casing Uyghur architecture. We were not allowed into the Mosque when we went, so it only took us less than 15mins to take some photos outside.

The Emin Minaret is beautiful - but there’s not much to see and it’s out of the way from many of the other points of interest. It doesn’t take long for the visit.

The dominating minaret and its delicate brickwork is the star of this site. However, another interesting feature is a pointed arch mihrab which faces the direction of Mecca. It is framed by a series of pointed arch doorways that are very distinctive. Very different from...More

This small minaret and mosque on the outskirts of Turpan is decorated with intricate and varied patterns, making it well worth a short visit. The driver we had hired for the day took us here after the Karez Museum and then dropped us at the...More

This minaret is truly beautiful in its architecture. I was glad we went with a guide as there didn't appear to be much information about the site. The mosque is still a place of worship. Worth a visit.

Very interesting minaret for sure but the site doesnt take 30 minutes of viewing time. Located out close to some grape vines. so maybe a little lunch under the grapes and a quick visit to the minaret
