As a county around ancient Bonan Route belonging to the Southern Silk Road, Yongping in West Yunnan historically was an area of cultural interchanges among Han, Yi, Bai and other ethnic groups. Since Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties, Islam has spread in this area with the entrance of Hui migrants. Yongping County became a cultural interchanges area for both multiple ethnic groups and multiple religions, including Han, Bai, Hui, Yi ethnic groups and Confucianism, Taoism, Buddhism, Islam, which is a representative of religious culture interchange in China society. In the present paper, the author concludes that the ancient Bonan Road belonging to the Southern Silk Road is not only an important Ethnic migration corridor, but also an important channel for dissemination and communication of religious culture.
