Pakhpa, a people of East Turkestan, who give their name to the Pakhpuluk district, on the northern slopes of the Muztagh Mountains, South Yarkand. Although described as "Tatarised Aryans," the type - tall, fair complexion, light eyes, sandy hair and whiskers, regular Caucasic features - shows that they are of pure Aryan descent, perhaps originally from Cashmere or Chitral; but they now speak a corrupt form of the Yarkand-Turki language, and have long been Mohammedans (Forsyth, Mission to Kashgar, pp. 61 et seq.).

“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”
