The Iron Pagoda, built in 1049, is in northeast Kaifeng. The structure is made of glazed bricks, patterned in 28 different styles, but from a distance the pagoda looks like it was made from iron. The 13 story octagonal pagoda is more than 55 meters (180ft) high and looks out onto a nearby park and some sections of the old city wall. Within the pagoda there are more than 50 glazed brick carvings dating from the Song dynasty (960-1271AD) that depict the exquisite craftsmanship from that period. Images of Buddha, lions and acrobatic performers are inscribed on these bricks.
