Big Goose Pagoda, Xian

Dayanta is an old temple in Xi’an that I went to…two weeks ago now! Ah, crazy. It was kind of crap like all China temples in big cities, devoid of anything truly sacred and full of souvenirs. But I found a cool little street to the front and left of it where there were a bunch of cheap, tasty little restaurants (bottom picture).

It was interesting to see this photograph of the temple 100 years ago…interesting, but more so shocking. I love the horse-drawn carriage at the foreground.
