  2. Sayyid Ajjal Shams al-Din,Kunming

Sayyid Ajjal Shams al-Din, 1210-1279, was born of a Hui (Muslim) family. In 1274, Kublai Khan (1215-1294) appointed him “top provincial official of Yunnan”. After he came to Yunnan, he set up districts, prefectures and counties, encouraging farming, had garrison troops and farmers open up wastelands for growing grains, asked to construct irrigation works, constructed Confucian temples and taught civilian etiquette etc. During his 6-year governing over Yunnan, he made great achievements. 

In the last second of his life he was still holding his post. People of Yunnan and Kunming felt his passing-away a great sorrow and named him “Xianyang King” posthumously. In order to honour him, Kunming locals built Zhong'ai (Loyalty) Archway which stands in the downtown and a memorial (cenotaph) in Minhang Road. Travel tips (1)-The memorial and cenotaph is near Wuliduo Primary School in Minhang Road; (2)-Nearby: Kunming City Museum; Chajie Flower Market; Zhenqing Taoist Temple.
