Raw data

"[T]he Qita (Seven Pagoda) Temple. - Founded in the Tang Dynasty (618-907) in 858, the temple has gone through many names and reconstructions. It was destroyed during the Taiping Rebellion in the middle of the 19th century, then rebuilt by the Guangxu Emperor of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1912) in 1895. At this time, the name of the temple was changed to reflect the seven small pagodas outside the temple’s front wall, and it was thenceforth called Qita Temple."
