Located not very far away from the Western train station, in principle, from there you can walk, you just have to navigate around the map. Or take a taxi, so it will be easier. The pagoda is located on the territory of the small temple and entrance to it is free. The temple itself is not of particular interest. But the pagoda stands to come there. This is one of the oldest buildings in Beijing. The Foundation generally refers to approximately 9 century (or even earlier?), first there was built a Buddhist pagoda-stupa. After its destruction, and later, on a foundation of brick pagoda, was built in about 11-12 in. long it and survived. The pagoda is interesting for its sculpted bas-reliefs on Buddhist themes. This place is interesting because it means that the locals refer to it with great respect, come there and praying, walking in circles around the pagoda clockwise. This Buddhist ritual, he brings the fulfillment of desires. In General, for connoisseurs and lovers of history to discover new, not widely advertised attractions Tjannin Pagoda-suitable object to a visit.
