description The seven-storey pagoda built in 652 A.D. is one of the city's symbols. It was built to house the 600 or so Buddhist texts that the buddhist monk Xuan Zang collected in India during his 17 year long pilgrimage. The giant candelabra standing in front of the entrance can be seen on the photo.
