Introduction :

The White Pyramid is located in the vicinity of Qiang Xian, a small Chinese town located 80 km to the northwest from Xi’an. White Pyramid is officially known as Liangshan Mountain. The first impression is that it’s a colossal pyramid with visible sides and angles but not the mountain as considered. Shroeder also wrote about a huge pyramid which looks like a mountain from the distance. In fact this construction is situated on the plane where many houses of peasants are built at the bottom of the “mountain” and on it’s terraces.

History :

Some decades ago a tomb of Emperor Gaozong (ruling from 649 to 683 AD) of Tan dynasty was found there. The emperor was buried inside the Liangshan Mountain where the tomb was already arranged in advance. Twenty symbolical guards stand on the way to a burial place with unusual long swords. Behind the guards there is a reconstructed gate built from clay but faced with bricks. The gate is followed by two large statues of mythical monsters.

Mountain Liangshan is a big Pyramid :

Thus the mountain Liangshan with the tomb of the emperor Gaozong is a colossal pyramid with four visible sides. It is difficult to determine the height of the pyramid. If measured from the platform where twenty guards stand the height is 160 meters, however if measured from the base of the pyramid the height is about 300 meters! Each side of the pyramid is unique, here what Shroeder wrote about it in 1912: 

“Each side of a pyramid was of different color: the northern side was black, the eastern – blue (teal), the southern – red and the western side had a tint of white. The flat top of the pyramid was covered with yellow soil (clay)”.

Geometry :

1.Height of 300 meters
2.Length of each side of foundation 500 meters
3.Symbolical description of color of sides of the pyramid and explanation of this feature in rational  method
4.The term White Pyramid has origin in a color of stone plates which covered pyramid
5.The pyramid constructed of the pressed clay, covered by stone plates
6.The sides (wall) of the pyramids have depressions which look like natural troughs
7.Steps or terraces of the pyramid
