There are more than 7.2 million Uygur people in Xinjiang nowadays. The Uygur nationality has a long history which may be traced back to the time of Dingling People, a nomadic tribe in northern China in the third century BC.
The Uygurs have their unique forms of art and culture and special folk customs. A joyous and lively festive air prevailing at Uygur wedding presents in general a true picture of the life and customs of the people.
