Explore the Little Wild Goose Pagoda on a holiday to China
The Little Wild Goose Pagoda is a UNESCO World Heritage Site located in the southern suburb of Xi'an, about two kilometres to the south of the Xi'an City Wall. This impressive pagoda stands in pleasant surroundings in the grounds of the ancient Jianfu Temple and has a history dating back over 1,300 years. As one of the key Buddhist structures built in the Tang Dynasty, the Little Wild Goose Pagoda has long been a place to light incense and pray. The exquisite appearance, beautiful craftsmanship and mysterious ambiance makes the Little Wild Goose Pagoda a must-see destination.
The thirteen-story pagoda reaches a height of 43 metres, its notable overlapping of layers a classic example of Tang Dynasty architecture. The structure is also proof of the sophistication of the Tang Dynasty – the area is prone to earthquakes and this pagoda was built to be earthquake-proof. It has survived from the 8th to the 21st century with minimal damage– quite impressive!
