131 Yongning Temple Pagoda Remains, Luoyang, Henan

Read more about my visit to this site.

The pyramid-like mound is all that remains of Yongning Temple Pagoda (永宁寺塔) in Luoyang, Henan (河南, 洛阳市). It was once perhaps 147 meters (nearly 500 feet) tall, which would have made it then the world's tallest building. It burned in 534--for three months!
