Wild Goose Pagoda

Wild Goose Pagoda

The Wild Goose Pagoda, Dayan TA, is situated at the Benevolence Temple to the south of Xian City. The temple was originally known as Wulou Temple (literally no leaking ) in the Sui dynasty. In Tang Dynasty, 652 AD, Crown Prince Li Zhi rebuilt it as a memorial to his mother. Xuanzang, a famous monk, scholar of Buddhism and great traveler and the Founder of Benevolence and Philanthropy of Buddhism, made a pilgrimage to India in 629 and returned in 645 with many Buddhist scriptures which were stored and translated into Chinese in the pagoda. The pagoda is also a safe for keeping invaluable ancient works of paintings, calligraphy and sculpture.  The pagoda which we see today is a T-storeyed, 64 meters high Buddhist structure in a sguare tapering shape. There are stairs leading up to top floor and visitors can have a bird's-eye view of the whole city.
