The Ganzhou Uyghur Kingdom, also referred to as the Hexi Uyghurs, was established in 894 around Gan Prefecture in modern Zhangye.[4][5] The kingdom lasted from 894 to 1036; during that time, many of Ganzhou's residents converted to Buddhism.[6] The Hexi Corridor, located within modern Gansu, was traditionally a Chinese inroad into Asia. From the 9th to 11th centuries this area was shared between the Ganzhou Uyghurs
Uyghurs
and the Guiyi Circuit. By the early 11th century both the Uyghurs

and Guiyi Circuit
