BIG WILD GOOSE PAGODA
This temple is the most famous for its legendary tales of "Journey To The West" where there was a Monkey God and the monk who carried the Sutra from India to China. This is a real piece of history and the Sutra was kept inside the Big Wild Goose Pagoda in Xian.

History recorded that a real Big Goose crashed itself to death at this temple! The monks and devotees turned vegetarians since then.
Outside the temple is a huge park with a big musical fountain area. Here a couple waited for the show but ended up fighting instead. The China Doll got pissed and smacked the guy's head repeatedly besides pulling his ears like a Donkey.
Goodness! It was too cold and my head turned into a block of ice! I stayed on just to snap these photos for you to enjoy.
