SANZHANG PAGODA - CHINA


The Sanzhang Pagoda is located on Fuzhou Hill to the west of Taiping Gate of Nanjing City. The small brick pagoda was built in modem times after the Tang Dynasty style of pagodas. A skull believed to be that of a famous monk of the Tang Dynasty, Xuanzang, was discovered in 1942. Some historians proposed that a pagoda be constructed especially for the skull, so Sanzhang Pagoda was erected in 1944 and the relic buried inside.
