Pagoda Forest, China

Gorgeous. From the NG website: “Gained merit in battle” reads the epitaph of two of the 231 eminent Shaolin monks honored with shrines in the Pagoda Forest. The number of layers in a shrine reflects a monk’s virtue; his bones, and often those of disciples, are buried below.

You can download it as wallpaper (or browse more photos) by clicking on the picture above. I love National Geographic’s stuff…
