Pagoda of Fogong Temple / 佛宫寺释迦塔, Ying County, Shanxi Province, Northern China.


The pagoda was built nearly 1000 years ago and is the tallest remaining ancient wooden structure (67.31M) in the world !!!
In May 2011, Shanxi provincial authorities stated that the application for the pagoda should be finished by July 2011 for it to be included on the UNESCO list of protected world heritage relics by 2013.
