English: Two Ming dynasty octagonal dharani pillars, on which are engraved the Tangut script version of the Dharani of the Victorious Buddha-Crown. Erected in the 10th month of the 15th year of the Hongzhi era (1502), these are the latest known examples of the Tangut script. They were discovered in 1962 on the site of a Lama temple with a stupa-pagoda in a village in the north of Baoding, and are now standing in the Ancient Lotus Pool (古蓮花池) garden in Baoding.
