Pilang Ancient City<br>Kuqa :: Xinjiang, China: Ancient Ruins of Pilang, Xinjiang, People's Republic of China
: Ruins and Restorations.
On the outskirts of Kuqa, about a 20 minute walk from the center of the new city, you'll find a few acres of ruins slowly being converted to cemetery. The aboveground mud and straw structures familiar to the muslim style of burial are found among the broken buildings and few remaining walls. The holes dug by either archaeologists or treasure hunters make for some treacherous exploring, but getting inside a few of the remaining buildings makes for worthwhile exploring. One of those few places where it was possible to set myself a little back in the old times. No tourists, no locals charging admission. Just some ruins.
