The oldest pagoda in China, over 1900 years old. It was closed in the afternoon maybe we went there a bit late so we didn't do the praying.

The centre of Nangong City is a mass of motor cycles both petrol and electric, push bikes, tractors, cars and assorted other methods of transport. The streets are crowded with stalls and shops selling everything from cement mixers to hot food. A short drive on the North East boundary of the city centre, nestled quietly beside the shores of a lake is the Buddhist Temple and pagoda of Putong. This remarkable site is a far cry from the hectic centre of town and the main attraction is the pagoda. This pagoda was built in AD 76. It is officially the oldest in all of China. Immediately on entering the temple compound you can feel the difference, it’s as though you have stepped into a different world, and, in many ways you have. The teachings and the practices are the same as they have been for century’s. The feelings of peace and harmony whilst in the compound will stay with you long after you leave. Well worth a visit.
