Guǎnghuì Temple

Buddhist Temple in Zhèngdìng

Nothing remains of this temple except Huá Pagoda (华塔; Huá Tā), dating from around 800 AD. It's an unusual, Indian-style pagoda decorated with lions, elephants, sea creatures and púsà (Bodhisattvas, who are those worthy of nirvana who remain on earth to help others attain enlightenment).
