Senso-ji Pagoda

Ever intrigued over Japanese architecture and pagodas, after visiting Japan and Nepal, I continued to paint more versions.

A pagoda is the general term in the English language for a tiered tower, built in the traditions originating in historic East Asia or with respect to those traditions, with multiple eaves common in Nepal, India, China, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Burma and other parts of Asia.

space-tSome pagodas are used as Taoist houses of worship. Most pagodas were built to have a religious function, most commonly Buddhist and were often located in or near viharas. This term may refer to other religious structures in some countries.  These old wooden structures were built without nails.
