THE legislature of northwest China's Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region recently passed legislation to guarantee the protection of the Mausoleum of the king of the Western Xia Dynasty, also known as the “Oriental pyramid.” 


Western Xia, an ancient kingdom established in the 11th century by a number of ethnic groups in what is now Ningxia, disappeared mysteriously much like the Mayan Civilization. 


The mausoleum houses nine imperial tombs and 250 attendant tombs covering a total area of 50sq km. 


The new set of regulations, which will take effect on April 1 of this year, prohibits the erection of new tombs, herding, hunting, mining, rubbish dumping and storage of flammable goods in the vicinity of the mausoleum. – People's Daily
