Wild Goose

The Giant Wild Goose Pagoda, Xi’an was built in 652 during the the Tang Dynasty and originally had five stories. One of the pagoda’s many functions was to hold sutras and figurines of the Buddha that were brought to China from India. The temple is the oldest standing structure in Xi’an-the oldest city in China.
