Xuanzang Tomb Pagoda (玄奘墓塔) is situated in Xingjiao Temple (兴教寺) in Chang'an County in the southern suburbs of Xi'an. It was built in 669 during the Tang Dynasty to bury Buddhist priest Xuanzang's remains. In 828 AD, it was rebuilt as it is today. The five-storey brick pagoda has a square ground plan, with each side of the first storey, 5.2 meters wide. The pagoda tapers sharply, making it very steady. At 21 meters high, it is a fairly big tomb pagoda, since Xuanzang was an eminent monk.
