  Western Pagoda, Kai Yuan Si, Quanzhou - 2001
by jetimblin

The Western (Renshou) Pagoda is located on the grounds of the Kai Yuan Si Buddhist temple. The pagodas were built from 1228 - 1248 and have survived many earthquakes and fires.

Evidently you are normally allowed to enter and climb to the top of these pagodas. However when I was there they were closed for restoration.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
