A Buddhist engraving on China’s highest pagoda, built in the city of Changzhou in east China’s Jiangsu province.

The structure is located at the Tianning Chan Temple, which was established in the Tang Dynasty between 600 and 900 A.D.

The temple is the largest and best-preserved ancient temple in the city.

More than 100 distinguished monks from China and abroad, including Chinese Buddhist Association president Yicheng, attended the opening ceremony for the 154 meter tall Tianning Pagoda.

Renowned tower designer Lu Binjie designed the structure, which features architectural details from the Tang and Song dynasties.

Changzhou is a prefecture-level city in southern Jiangsu province of the People’s Republic of China. It was previously known as Yanling, Lanling, Jinling, and Wujin.
