Flower Pagoda : Michelin's recommendations
The most remarkable building of the Buddhist Temple of the Six Banyan Trees is the beautifully carved Flower Pagoda (1098). Standing at a height of 54m, the pagoda consists of 17 storeys, only eight of which are visible thanks to a trompe-l'oeil effect. The roofs of the different storeys curve like dark red flower petals. The temple houses a number of Buddhist relics, and a bronze column weighing 5t on the top of the temple is decorated with 1 000 Buddhas.
