The Giant Wild Goose Pagoda is a Buddhist pagoda built in 652 during the Tang Dynasty, one of the strongest dynasties in Chinese history. It was originally 5 stories tall (it currently has 7 stories) before it was rebuilt in 704 during Empress Wu Zetian's rule and renovated during the Ming Dynasty. In front of the pagoda is a statue of Xuanzang, a monk who brought China and India together during the Tang Dynasty.
