About White Dagoba (Pagoda) Temple (bai ta si) 
The Pagoda is actually only part of the Tibetan Miao Ying Temple, but since it is the temple's most prominent feature, locals name the whole complex after it. The Pagoda itself is over 700 years old, and was built by a famed Nepalese architect known as Arniger in 1271, during the Yuan Dynasty. The 50.9-meter high structure took eight years to complete.
