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.
Magnificent scenes and shots!
Thank you blazing trail for appreciating the pictures. 🙂
Looking down at the shell of the stairs is particularly mesmerising, and beautiful.
It was when I was there and it still is through the picture. Thank You 🙂
Yes, it’s beautiful – good shot:)
Awesome pics, Jep! I especially love the ones looking down the stairs. Makes me want to add Singapore to the long list of places to go. : )
Hi topicless! Wow! This is a surprise. It feels different to be the one receiving comments from you. Hehe… Thanks for dropping by. Welcome to my blog!
Those stairs shot is also one of my favorites. One experience from it I won’t forget is, as I was going down the stairs, I looked up and saw somebody taking a picture of me on the stairs. I winked and he put down his camera and smiled. 🙂
Wait ’til you see more of Singapore. 😉 Adding it to your list to visit will be a great idea. C’mon let’s go invade Singapore. 🙂
