The Big Goose Pagoda in Xian is one of the most famous Buddhist pagodas in China and was built in the Tang Dynasty (618-907) for the study of Buddhist scriptures. The storied pagoda is an architectural marvel built with layers of bricks without any cement and the bracket style used in traditional Chinese architecture was also used in the construction of the pagoda. The seams between each layer of bricks and the “prisms” on each side of the pagoda are clearly visible.

The grand body of the pagoda with its solemn appearance, simple style and high structure, is a fascinating example of Chinese traditional architecture. Tours are easily arranged with expert guides to allow you to experience this historical Far Eastern wonder in all of its glory and will give you an informative and educational journey that you and your family will never forget.
