The ancient city of Jiaohe, Turpan, China. Among the earliest settlers of this area are Indo-European speaking Tocharians, populating the Tarim and Turfan basins no later than 1800 BC. It was an important site along the Silk Road trade route leading west adjacent to the Korla and Karasahr kingdoms to the west. Finally abandoned after its destruction during an invasion by the Mongols led by Genghis Khan in the 13th century.
