It is common to see a vine-entwined tree, but rare to see a tree-entwined Pagoda which amazingly appears in Mangshi.

The odd view is due to the dusty crack in the brick pagoda. A banyan seed brought in the crack by a bird or the wind has gradually rooted and thus become the Pagoda-entwined Tree. With the growth of the tree, the pagoda kept unchanged and became entwined by the tree. The tree and the pagoda have finally become a united body.
