Kuqa Wangfu Scenic Area

Located in Kuqa County, Xinjiang, the "Kuqa Wangfu" was built by Emperor Qianlong of Qing Dynasty in 1759 by dispatching Han craftsmen from the mainland in order to commend the local Uygur leader, Ezu, for his contribution in helping to calm down the large and small rebellions. At the beginning of the 20th century, there were only some houses and walls left in the former "Kuqa Wangfu". Therefore, in 2004, the Kuqa County Government invested 13 million yuan to rebuild the "Kuqa Wangfu" on the original site according to Dawuti Maihesuti's memory.


The rebuilt Kuqa Palace covers an area of 40,000 square meters. It combines the architectural features of the palaces, pavilions and towers of the Kuqa Palace in the Central Plains of China and Islamic style. Tourists will also learn about the 190-year historical life of the 12th generation hereditary "Kuqa King" through cultural relics exhibition, family history introduction and special diet.

The Kuqa Palace is called "the Prince Palace of the Kuqa Heritage Return Department". The "Prince of Hui" is the "Uygur King", which commands most of the Uygur people in the south of Tianshan Mountains. The Kuqa palace was built in the eighth year of Daoguang in the Qing Dynasty, that is, 1828 A.D. During the reign of Qianlong, the first generation of Hui princes was named Milza Erbiao, a local official who commanded Kuqa, Aksu and Baicheng, the important towns in southern Xinjiang. When the Qing government calmed down the rebellion in Junggar and the great and small Hezhuo, Mirza E made outstanding contributions to safeguarding the reunification of the motherland. For this reason, Emperor Qianlong named him "Yipinza Saddar Khan". By September 26, 1949, Xinjiang was peacefully liberated, with twelve generations of hereditary princes. Dawuti Maihesuti (1927-2014), the twelfth generation prince, was the last king in China. He is 88 years old this year (died on July 30, 2014), serving as vice chairman of the Kuqa County Political Consultative Conference and the oldest national civil servant in China.

For nearly 200 years, the Kuqa palace was destroyed by Kuomintang warlords in 1937. The palace we see now was rebuilt in 2004, with an investment of 15 million yuan. It was rebuilt as it was during the eleventh generation of princes. The Wangfu Tourist Area covers an area of 40,000 square meters. It mainly consists of Wangfu Exhibition Area, Guizi Museum Exhibition Area and Ancient City Wall Exhibition Area. There are also supporting facilities and departments such as "Wangfu Inn", "Wangfu Home Visit", "Campfire Interactive Evening Party", "Banquet Hall", "Tourist Shopping", "Wangfu Song and Dance Troupe".

This building, as you can see from a glance, was designed and constructed entirely in accordance with the architectural style of the Chinese culture in the Central Plains.

There are three wax figures here, and the middle one is the first prince, Mirza Eye. In 1757, Size and Size Hezhuo rebellion invaded Kuqa City. At that time, Milza E-pair, who served as local officials in Kuqa, Aksu and Baicheng, firmly opposed secession and safeguarded the reunification of the motherland in the face of the threat and lure of the rebels. The rebels brutally murdered his two sons and one daughter, and then all his family. Milza Ezu led more than a dozen people all the way to Beijing and asked the court to send troops to fight the rebellion. After the Xiaohe Zhuo rebellion was put down, Emperor Qianlong ordered people to draw a portrait of Mirza E Pair and hang it in the Golden Light Cabinet of the Beijing Palace Museum. Later, in solving the problem of Hotan, Mirza E, risking his life, went to Hotan City alone as a lobbyist for the court and made extraordinary contributions at the critical moment. The seventh generation of Prince Mirza Ahmeti was awarded by Emperor Xianfeng for his dedication to the management of copper factories. Three years of Tongzhi, in 1864, Kuqa emerged as an Islamic Jihad rebellion. The rebels coerced Mirza Ahmaiti as their leader. He would rather die than be killed by rebel stones. Wangfuzi declined in the 11th generation. In the Republic of China, in 26 years (1937), Wangfuzi was arrested by Shengshicai. At the same time, all the property of Wangfuzi was seized. After years of rain and wind, the palace became ruins. Although the palace has been buried in the dust of history, the last king, Dawuti Maihesuti, died of illness in July 2014 at the age of 88.

Here is a brief introduction of the last prince, the twelfth prince, Dawuti Maihesoti.

Dawuti Maihesuti

Dawuti Maihesuti was the nephew of the eleventh generation of Prince Maihefuzi. Since Maihefuzi had no son, Dawuti Maihesuti passed on to his uncle as a child and became the legal heir to the throne. At the age of 14, Sheng Shicai, a warlord in Xinjiang, in order to consolidate the rule of southern Xinjiang, was approved by the Xinjiang Governor's Office to succeed to the throne and become the twelfth generation of Kuqa King. From 1947 to 1949, Dawuti Maihesoti served as Senator of the Xinjiang Provincial Government. After the liberation of Xinjiang, Dawuti Maihesuti served as president of Kuqa, Shaya, Xinxian and Sanxian central banks. From 1951 to 1958, due to a mistake, Dawuti Maihesuti reformed in Aksu. After serving his sentence, he served as the director of the agricultural machinery repair plant, the head of the water conservancy engineering team, the captain and technician of the capital construction engineering team, the government translator, and the translator of the cultural administration office. Since 1984, he has served as vice chairman of the Kuqa CPPCC and deputy of the National People's Congress.

Dawuti Maihesuti was not only a feudal lord, but also a loyal friend of our party, and a patriotic national master loved by the people of all nationalities. He firmly supported the Communist Party, stood firm in safeguarding the reunification of the motherland, and opposed national separatism with a clear banner. He made outstanding contributions in promoting national unity, social stability and economic development.

He has won many honorary titles such as "model of national unity", "honest and good cadres of the CPPCC" and "excellent CPPCC members". In 2003, he was named "Top Ten Persons" in Aksu. In the nearly 200 years of history, the twelfth generation of Uygur kings in Kuqa mostly insisted on maintaining the reunification of the motherland, uniting the people of all ethnic groups, resolutely opposing the separatist forces, and made indelible contributions to the reunification of the motherland, national unity and social stability.
