A trip to China - Day 6 - The Pagoda Forest

The pagoda forest

After another exhausting walk, by now the heat was beginning to take its toll on everyone, we arrived at the pagoda forest.

No, it's not a forest with trees it's a collection of over 100 pagodas, each a tribute to a head monk at the temple and it goes back a long time.  The tribute can have one, three, five, or the maximum seven layers the significance of which I don't remember.

This is one of the more recently constructed pagodas


From there we get a ride back on the back of a large electric wagon

to the front entrance courtyard where drinks and ice creams can be bought, and a visit to the all-important happy place.

Then it's back to the hotel.
