Master Xuanzang was the premise for The Journey West folklore / fairy tale of traveling west with his disciples (Monkey King, Piglet, etc.) to bring back scriptures. Beautiful view of the Big Goose Pagoda in background. Also a temple that the emperor built at the time.

He was 13 years old when he began his life of purity, and opened the monastery. I'm glad they have the statue to remind you why the pagoda is there.

We passed this statue and didn't even bother stopping. We gave it a 5 second gander and continued our journey to buy some roujiamo.

We visited Master Xuanzang on the way to the pagoda. He was a wee bit down cast, as it had rained all day, which did cut down the crowds. So photo ops were good

There's a small shopping area close by which also has a lot of activities. Nearby there a street of restaurant if... More

The bronze statue looks really great against the background of the pagoda. In the evening the lights around the area illuminates the statue against the sky and the pagoda in the background.

We visited The Giant Wild Goose Pagoda while in Xi'an to see The Terracotta Warrior Exhibit. I found the statue of the monk Xuanzang an interesting part of the history of the area and the temple. The day we were there the smog obscured both.
