Tianshan magical wood gardenia located in Wensu county in Aksu prefecture in Xinjiang province. It is also called KumishAtar Mazar. It is situated north-west of Wensu country 60 kilometers. It covers area of 600 acre and sea level is 1700 meters..It can be also called the pearl of the Gobi desert.It is the holy cemetery for the saint who propagandized religion here. It also located at the south side of the Tomur peaks,which is the highest peak of the mighty Tianshanmoutnains 7440 metrers above the sea level. Tianshan mountains has divided Xinjiang into two parts. The area to the north of the Tianshan Mountain can be call northern Xinjiang,the area to the south of the Tianshan Mountains' is called Southern Xinjiang.The giant Tianshan serve as natural fortification to defend southern Xinjiang in the ancient time to fight against with Huns coming from the north of the Tianshan mountains. So the Tianshan also can be liken to the great wall in Xinjiang but it is the naturally made great wall to defend people who live in the south of the Tianshan mountains.. So this Garden was also a holy place cemetery for Muslim to pray and to summon people to gather together.
According to legend,a Imam Called SulitankuSaiyide led 2000 followers to arrive western region of china via India to missionize. But the local people had rejected it and the conflicts happened here so that they .retreated in defeat to settle here. Most of the follower and leader SulitankuSaiyide who died during the battles were buried here. The place where they had buried became a cemetery. There are unique trees of all shapes which can find their resemblance in real life creatures. There are also many exotic flowers and herbs. The water flowing with the sound. Everywhere is the shadow of the trees under the scorching sun. Very often the Muslim swarm there to proceed pilgrimage. According to Wensu county records,This place was called Serikeweidu which means the yellow land, namely sterility land. when the leader retreated in defeat to arrive here, followers was very thirsty and tired so Leader SulitankuSaiyide used crabstick that was given by Mohammed when he left Mekka to stick into the wells. The well that he sticked with crabstick effused crystal clear water.and then He sticked everywhere in the garden. So anywhere that he sticked effused water. Moreover miracle happened that all the places with water had transformed into oasis.
