Tekes County is a county within the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region and is under the administration of the Ili Kazakh Autonomous Prefecture. It contains an area of 8,067 km2. According to the 2002 census, it has a population of 150,000.The country center is known for being a planned community with a shape of a ba gua.[ The bagua (Chinese: 八卦; literally: "eight symbols") are eight trigrams used in Taoist cosmology to represent the fundamental principles of reality, seen as a range of eight interrelated concepts. Each consists of three lines, each line either "broken" or "unbroken," representing yin or yang, respectively. Due to their tripartite structure, they are often referred to as "trigrams" in English.

The trigrams are related to taiji philosophy, taijiquan and the wu xing, or "five elements".[1] The relationships between the trigrams are represented in two arrangements, the Primordial (先天八卦), "Earlier Heaven"[2] or "Fuxi" bagua (伏羲八卦), and the Manifested (後天八卦), "Later Heaven,"[2] or "King Wen" bagua. The trigrams have correspondences in astronomy, astrology, geography, geomancy, anatomy, the family, and elsewhere.[3][4]

The ancient Chinese classic I Ching (Pinyin:Yi Jing) consists of the 64 possible pairs of trigrams (called "hexagrams") and commentary on them.

For this reason I Have read about it on the internet to say this city is one of the three best Fengshui area in china besides Yunana Kunming and the other I forgot. ,Fengshui translated into English is called wind and water. I t is locaed in the best scenerary of Xinjiang on the ancient silk road as well. But this silk road was the  road that famous monks called Xuanzang in Tang dynasty to passs through here as a a result to obtain the Buddhism scriptures. So this road is difficult because all the highest mountains over 6000 meters all merged here to stop road but now it is best for trekking tourist or special tours. All the road to western country can be called silk road in the ancient time from china to India and to western countries. so this road has never been actually taken as main tourist road for traveller never before as popular sites so it is very interesting to see this city you and definitely can bring you good luck because of the Fengshui..
