Scenic Sunday—Three Storied Pagoda

Originally built in 1712, the pagoda underwent three major repairs in 1801, 1812 and 1858. JIMON carvings may be seen engraved on it’s pillars, architraves and the likes. The end of rafters are ornamented with dragons carved in the full round. On the wooden siding walls are the sculptures of the sixteen RAKAN or Buddha’s disciples who attained Nirvana.
