Little Goose Pagoda


Little Goose Pagoda
Originally uploaded by paulbrockmann.

Less fully restored, and less touristed than the complex that holds Big Goose Pagoda, is Little Goose Pagoda, which feels almost dainty when conpared to the massiveness of Big Goose Pagoda. Like Big Goose, it was also built in 709 to house Buddhist manuscripts brought from India by another monk. It’s quite lovely, and can also be climbed all the way up to the roof, though apparently the original top was knocked off in an earthquake in the 16th century. In the next set you’ll see a few shots taken either from inside or the top of Little Goose, as well as some other atmosphere shots of the grounds of the complex.
