Solomon's relationship to Queen of Sheba[edit]

At least in Biblical tradition, the Queen of Sheeba was not Solomon's mother. Solomon's mother was Bathsheba. The Queen of Sheeba travelled to see Solomon.


Here you write that the Muztagh Ata mountain is not part of the Kunlun mountains, but on the wikipedia page on Muztagh Ata at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muztagh_Ata it is claimed that "Muztagh Ata ... is the second highest mountain in the Kunlun Shan". Can you please clarify this issue? At the moment you are contradicting yourself.


Naming is all over the place on this one, but "Kunlun Mountains" is consistent with both Encarta and Britannica, plus seems to get most Google hits, assuming that means anything... :-) Stan 21:35, 15 Mar 2004 (UTC)

Yeah; in addition, there’s K’un-lun, Kuen-lün, Kwan-lun, and allegedy Kulkun (from some Google Books results in the 1800s) which, in turn, in one book, is conflated with Kurkun (which is a peak in the Hindu Kush). This is just English, though a French-derived spelling Kouenlun has also been employed. As well, an (open source, I think, and therefore widely disseminated) Chinese-English dictionary seem to conflate them with Karakorum ’cause of the shared 崑崙 characters in Chinese and/or their proximity. —Wiki Wikardo 22:32, 27 February 2008 (UTC)[reply]


The above three peaks are in the Kashgar Range and are not linked with the Kunlun Shan. If somebody can, please edit further on!??? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 06:44, June 23, 2006 (UTC)

  • What three peaks are you referring to? RedWolf 16:03, 30 October 2006 (UTC)[reply]


What about the Kunlun's prominent position in the novel "Lost Horizon", by James Hilton, as the location of Shangri-la? Yuletide 22:02, 13 December 2006 (UTC)[reply]


I propose removing KunlunMountains.jpg as it contains no information except identifying a subcontinental area where the mountains might be. -Rolypolyman 20:14, 21 October 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Fine with me. --Mattisse 00:06, 22 October 2007 (UTC)[reply]
Yeah, so if someone could make a map highlighting what’s where (like this one [not free :( ], which is how I figured out all that shit above), that’d be awesome.
Oh, hey... Mount Kailash has one that might work. Or wherever they got that from. —Wiki Wikardo 22:32, 27 February 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Yet another map[edit]

Following previous, I do not see point in having Map of the Western Regions (English translation) appended to the Hsi-yu-tu-chih, compiled on the orders of Emperor Chien-lung in 1762.jpg, for example, Tarimrivermap.png (in e.g. Tarim Basin) could give a better current view of things.

Kunlun's alleged Mongolian origin[edit]

How it is possible for the name Kunlun to have come from a Mongolian word when this name have been in use before there were even Mongolians? Nebakin (talk) 07:48, 12 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
