China’s Tallest Brick Pagoda Leaning to the East

Wenfeng Pagoda, China’s tallest brick-structured pagoda.

Wenfeng Pagoda (Cultural Peak Pagoda) in Fenyang, Shanxi Province, was built at the end of the Ming Dynasty in the middle of the 17th century.

The structure is 84.93 metres tall and has 13 floors.

After a magnitude 6 earthquake in 1932, the pagoda began to tilt towards the east and, further owing to the collapsible nature of the yellow earth, the structure now leans eastward 1.82 metres.

Something really great built by an intelligent mind but it is the Nature that will determine its life.

All Things Chinese
It is also our mind that creates and determines Nature. The relationship between mind and Nature is mutual-correlation. 🙂
