Buddhist Pagoda

This five-storey pagoda was originally in the Japanese exhibit at the Panama-Pacific Exposition of 1915. After the close of the exposition, the Hagiwaras had it brought to the Tea Garden. In Japan and other countries in the Far East, pagodas - which are Buddhist shrines - were often built over a sacred relic. The spire at the top of a pagoda is called a sorin and its nine rings represent various heavens of the gods.
