Jade Gate Pass is one of the most important and popular stop points along the ancient Silk Road as it was built to ensure the safety and smooth travels for traders and visitors traveling to and from Central Asia. Built in the Gobi Desert under the order of Emperor Wudi around 121 BC, it was named Jade Gate Pass as jade from Hetian in Xinjiang was supposedly transported through this pass. #silkroad #journeytothewest
