Mor Buddhist Pagoda
Standing more than twelve meters high, the Mor Buddhist Pagoda has three square layers with each a little smaller than the one below it. The bottom layer has circumferences of more than forty-eight meters, the second layer forty meters, and the third layer thirty-two meters. Next to the pagoda is a platform, which was one of the central temple structures. In its side walls were carved niches housing Buddha figurines. However, there aren’t any figures left now, and even the niches themselves are barely visible. 30 kilometers northeast in Kashgar city stands the ruined adobe-walled city of Hanoi (not to be confused with the city Hanoi in Vietnam), which is 1,500 years old. It lies in an area of three kilometers long and one kilometer wide. The ancient city used to be the place where the monks of Buddhism worshipers of the ancient Shule Kingdom lived. To a few kilometers south of it is the Mor Buddhist Pagoda. Monk lived in the city used to come to worship the Mor Buddhist Pagoda.
