Escursioni a Datong - Datong One Day Excursion Tour
Escursioni a Datong: Hanging Monastery is an architectural wonder. A unique mechanical theory was applied to building the framework. Crossbeams were half-inserted into the rock as the foundation, while the rock at the back became its support. The Hanging Monastery appears to be a tumble-down castle in the air.
The Yingxian Wooden Pagoda was built in 1056 and is the world's oldest and tallest wooden Buddhist Pagoda. The pagoda stands at 66.6 meters tall with a 30-meter diameter and weighs over 300 tons. Made up of at least 3,500 cubic meters of wood, the pagoda is octagonal in shape and contains nine floors.
