Gao Chang ruins is close to Turpan. You will get burned if you stand in that sun for 10 minutes. It was the old captital of GaoChange Kingdom. It is a kingdom that is very religious in Buddism. The famous monk from China bypassed this place during his trip to get buddism scripts in India. He was warmly hosted and gave some talks in this city. Today what you can see is the ruin of the city and the place where the monk gave the talk is still there.

We left Xinjiang in the afternoon of day 6 and what a trip ......

I am opening a new page for the rest part of our trip. Please find it in Dunhuang.
