In Xinjiang,there is a popular saying,which goes like this:"anyone who has not been to Kashigar is the man who has not been to Xinjiang."This is because Kashigar in the history played extremely important roles in different periods of Xinjiang and made its special contributions to the exchanges between the estern and western civilizations.Therefore,Kashigar may be said as a"living fossil of Xinjiang History".And tiis also because today's Kashigar, with its traditional culture and ethnic features,and the typical of Uygur nationality in particular,is a miniature of Xinjiang.
