THE 7-STOREY PAGODA
The Pagoda is the signature architectural building of the Chinese. In the ancient times, it used to be a simple tower located near a temple. They were used to house human bones by Buddhists. The 7-storey pagoda, called “Ru Yun Ta,” follows the style of Ling Ku Temple Pagoda in Nanjing.
Before you can get to the top, you have to climb like a hundred steps and lose a number of breaths. However, once at the top, it’s worth it. The breeze is nice and you’ll be able to see the Japanese Garden from afar and the Chinese garden as a whole, from a larger perspective. I lingered for a while, enjoying the sights from above. I love high places and I like that heady feeling you get when you look down.
