Summary
"Pagodas were first built as places to memorialize and worship the Buddha, the founder of Buddhism. After Buddhism's spread to China, this traditional structure was combined with Chinese architecture to form a distinctive new kind of pagoda native to china. Shanxi Province has long been known as the "Land of Ancient Pagodas," and is still home to 485 ancient pagodas representing a wide spectrum of forms and styles. Pagodas at Buddhist temples and famous sacred mountains not only are beautiful parts of the landscape, they have played important roles in the popularization of Buddhism. Many of the pagodas in Shanxi feature shapes and functions unmatched in all of China" -- Container.
