China’s Heritage Conservation Association has named the Ten Thousand Buddha Stone Pagoda its seventh national heritage conservation site – the first such site in high-tech zone of Taihu Lake.

The pagoda was built between 1131 to 1162, and is the best preserved example of ancient architecture in Gaoxin. The structure reaches a height of 11.4m, and the interior is cylindrical, with 60 rows of five-centimeter Buddhas on the walls – including one row featuring 180 Buddhas - creating a total of 10800 Buddhas.

An expert with the Heritage Conservation Association said that the Ten Thousand Buddha Stone Pagoda is a unique pagoda which requires careful preservation.
