The Mauri-Tim Stupa in Kashgar
The Mauri-Tim Stupa Located on a loess platform 30 kilometers to the northeast of the Kashi City, the Stupa is 12 meters high and has a square base rising in three stories, which is surmounted by a cylinder drum forming the dome. By the Stupa is a high platform, which was once one of the main structures of the temple. No Buddha remained, only some niches can be dimly recognized. The upper limit of the age of the Stupa may be very early; its lower limit perhaps reaches to the 10th century. The Mauri-Tim Stupa is of great value for study on the Buddhist cultures in Shule Kingdom. Now it is listed as a major cultural site protected by the Autonomous Region.
