This is located next to the Wild Goose Pagoda. Evening events are great and you can see all the local activities gathering around the area.

Master Xuanzang is associated with the journey west epic in Chinese folklore. Nice to see his statue - you can stop on the way to the Wild Goose Pagoda just behind. All part of China's rich heritage! Worth a few minutes of your time.

The statue of Master Xuanzang reminds us of the importance he was in commencing the teaching of Buddhism in China. If for nothing else the viewing of the statue is important. See it at night too for a different perspective.

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.
