The pagoda leans noticeably, but there is no danger of it collapsing.
The entrance to the main shrine.
Even closer -- joss sticks burning.
Inside the main shrine. There were a number of other, smaller shrines within the grounds of the monastery. For pictures of some of them go here.
It was hot so we sat in the shade while Rose explained our surroundings and schedule. Then it was off to rest up for our next destination -- dumpling dinner and a show.
The highpoint of a visit to Xi'an is the Tang dynasty show. It follows a delicious dinner the main feature of which is dumplings, many of which are shaped like the meat or vegetables with which they are stuffed. These four dumplings are filled with chicken, pork, fish, and vegetables. All were extremely scrumptious.
A flock of duck dumplings ready to be eaten. Yum!
And now for the show....
