Three 1000 year old pagodas

The Three Pagodas of Chongsheng Temple in Dali City, China, are an ensemble of pagoda towers. They have been built around the 9th and 10th century.

Unlike many similar structures, they have proven themselves to be extremely resilient structures, surviving earthquakes, battles and other calamities.  The towers are between 70 meters (227 feet) and 42 meters (140ft) high and are made of brick and white mud. Legend says that the towers have been built to scare off local dragons.
