Summary/Abstract: After migrating to Turpan region, Uyghurs adopted settled life style significantly along with nomadic life. They have been influenced by Chinese and Indian civilizations but they didn't lose their unique cultural characteristics. Cultural developments in their way of life have been rather affected by geographical features of Turpan region which they have accepted as their homeland. Turpan region was suitable for agricultural and commercial activities but as Buddhism is a belief system which indoctrinates to become settled, Uyghurs have been encouraged to establish and develop cities in the course of their commercial routes. In this sense Turpan became the center of Uyghur culture.
