Japanese pagoda Japanese pagoda Presentation Transcript

  • JAPANESE PAGODA NEIL JUDE T. VALENCIA
  • Pagoda( to )  a tiered tower with projecting roofs  an evolution of the Indian Stupa( a building to enshrine the cremated remains of Buddha: ashes and bone fragments)  It functions the same as the stupa
  • Pagoda and Stupa Differences  one can actually enter a pagoda. Remember that a stupa is a solid dome and the way to venerate the Buddha was not to go inside (since that is impossible) but instead to circumambulate the mound  pagoda emphasizes verticality even more(Japanese believes that taller structure better communicated the idea that the pagoda is acting as a link between the mortal and heavenly realms, as the structure reaches for the sky
  • History  After the stupa migrated with Buddhism from ancient India to China, the structure became taller and developed layers or tiers  When Buddhism was introduced from China to Japan, the layered pavilions and pagodas of China influenced the way the Japanese designed and built pagodas

  •  The square shape symbolizes the earth  The center column is considered the "axle of the world"  the spire on top of the structure represents Buddha as master of the universe  The reason why a large number of pagodas have five tiers is that each tier has a particular elemental meaning in Buddhism
  • Each of its levels, ascending, is slightly smaller than the last, resulting in a pyramid-like structure that is topped by a spire
