The name of the General Gobi, it is said in the early of the Tang Dynasty, a general named Yangxigu led his soldiers into Western regions(Xiyu) to resist Turkic, After countless bloody battles,the enemy was finally being defeated. However they were strayed into a boundless Gobi on their way back and theres no headwaters, soldiers drank up all the water and fell down one after another until the whole army was annihilated in the Gobi.  Their bodies were found in a forward position, people set a temple here in memory of the soldiers who were sacrificed for the country, so the Gobi was also known as General Gobi(Jiangjun Gobi).
