Twin Pagodas, Taiyuan, Shanxi province, China

In history (like everywhere) the bigger is better. Same in religion, but accompanied with the meaning of being closer to heaven. This time it is about two octagonal pagodas (the tallest pair in China :), each one of more then 50 meters tall, standing since 16th century and accompanied with the temple and peony garden, which supposed to blossom beautifully in spring.

If you like pagodas as I am, grab a fisheye lens, walk around the pagodas, climb on one of them (the other is closed for visitors), explore the dark staircase interior and take cool pics from the 13-th floor :)
