Xinjiang region of #China (Image 1) was the most important region on #SilkRoute for travelers carrying #Sanskrit texts from #India.

Crescent Moon Lake (Image 2 & 3) site was the shelter for these travelers in this arid region.

Voyage of Sanskrit in China was not easy ! 🙂 ImageImageImage
The #SilkRoute in #China got bifurcated at Kashgar creating North and South routes ultimately meeting at Dunhuang (See the map below)

This route gave birth to "Central Asia", a logical unit on the physical map of Asia 🙂

On this route - Oasis, Kingdoms, Cities got established. Image
These kingdoms, cities and other places became the halting places for the travelers.

They helped transmitting #Sanskrit texts, thoughts, ideas, literature, art and culture from #India to not only Central Asia and #China but also to East Asia.
Prof. Lokesh Chandra says -

#Sanskrit was the mind of the #SilkRoute, a bridge of dreams floating across cloudless skies of the sand"

Also -
Sanskrit fragments found on the Silk Route are tears of the Time !!
