Wonder of Pu'er: Pagodas in threes, trees in pagodas

(People's Daily Online)    11:04, February 27, 2018

There is a wonder of "tree-tower integration" in Guanmian Temple, Dazhai, Jinggu County, Pu'er. Locals call it "pagodas in trees, trees in pagodas".

Both pagodas were built in 1644. Due to the humid climate of Jinggu, birds dropped banyan seeds into brick joints of the pagodas. Seeds rooted and sprouted after a long time, twined around the pagodas and grew into the wonder hundreds of years later.
