Sakya Pandita Stupa | Western Xia Main Page
The funerary stupa (1251) of Sakya Pandita Kunga Gyaltsen (1182-1251) at Wuwei, Gansu Province, China. The city of Wuwei was the former capital of the Western Xia Kingdom (Xixia, Tangut).
The stone edict was erected by a Ming emperor in the mid 15th century after repairs were completed on the stupa having been damaged by an earthquake sometime earlier.
