Big Goose Pagoda(China--Xian)
Big Goose Pagoda is one of the oldest structures in China.
Originally Big Goose Pagoda consisted of a brick structure of five storeys and was about 60 meters high. Between AD 701 and AD 704 during the reign of the Empress Wu Zetian five more storeys were added to the pagoda making ten in all. Unfortunately it was damaged during World War II and reduced to seven storeys, which is as it remains today.The Big Goose Pagoda is situated in the Da Ci"en Temple, four kilometers away from the center of the city. It is one of the city"s most distinctive and outstanding landmarks, possibly the most beautiful building left in Xian today.

First built to a height of 60 meters (197 feet) with five stories, it is now 64.5 meters (211.6 feet) high with an additional two stories. It was said that after that addition came the saying-"Saving a life exceeds building a seven-storied pagoda". Externally it looks like a square cone, simple but grand and it is a masterpiece of Buddhist construction. Built of brick, its structure is very firm. Inside the pagoda, stairs twist up so that visitors can climb and overlook the panorama of Xian City from the arch-shaped doors on four sides of each storey. On the walls are engraved fine statues of Buddha by the renowned artist Yan Liben of the Tang Dynasty. Steles by noted calligraphers also grace the pagoda.
