This pagoda serves as the place where the monk Xuanzang, during his 17 year travel to India and back to China, kept all materials and relics related to Buddhism. He initiated the translation of all Sanskrit sutras to Chinese. The legendary story of the Monkey King is actually based on the life of this monk as shared by our guide. At 7 storeys high and made entirely of bricks, the pagoda is an architectural marvel because of its lack of cement. What made this one of the highlights of our trip for us is actually the fountain show at the north square behind it. We were told this is the biggest light & music fountain show in Asia. It's best to watch this of course at night but our tight schedule didn't allow for this. Still, kids were ecstatic and hyper the entire time. The smiles on their faces were priceless! Highly recommended for those traveling with kids. Another tip: the best view is from inside the top of the pagoda for the hard core photo enthusiasts.
