Gaochang Ruins - adobe structure

This structure is reconstructed in the 1980's, but I was unable to confirm its identity. Some said it is a General's Headquarter, but that seems too small. It is more likely a reconstruction of a Buddhist meditation chamber - more fitting and more important in this once highly regarded Buddhist center.
