In the long history of Uygur formation and development, Uygur people created their own ancient architecture culture and modern architectural civilization. The Uygur traditional residence is closely related to the various elements of the Uygur nationality, such as the social structure, religious belief, life style and the local natural environment. It is a concentrated embodiment of the material living standard and spiritual life of a nation. The paper tries to demonstrate and analyze the structure, classification and characteristics of Uygur dwellings during the republic of China. Thus, it has a profound understanding of Uygur dwellings, and reveals that the Uygur people have made an important contribution to the development of the Chinese nations history and culture for the creation of multi ethnic unity China.
