Xi’an, Small Wild Goose Pagoda

The Buddhist pagoda was built between 649 and 683 for the Emperor Gaozong during the Tang Dynasty and stood 177ft tall. Empress Wu Zetian had the pagoda rebuilt and added 5 new stories by 704. In 1556 it was damaged by an earthquake and 3 stories were lost. It has not been rebuilt since then. Beautiful gardens surround the pagoda and like all other gardens in China, it is a place to gather for song, dance, meditation, or just walking.

Here are some shots of the gardens and artwork.

And you can’t walk through a park without seeing the locals either dancing or doing Tai Chi.
