Pagoda is the name given to the religious structures of the Buddhists. Pagodas are mostly made of stone, sometimes brick, and very rarely made of wood. Pagodas are common in Southeast Asia, which is in the field of China, Japan and Indian culture.
The structure, which is sometimes placed on a round but generally four or more edged foundation, narrows and rises. There is a long column in the middle of the tower. Starting from the ground up to the roof, this symbolizes the axis that connects the center of the earth to the sky. Japanese pagodas generally have four columns at four corners, which symbolize the pillars that hold the sky. The number of floors of a pagoda varies between 5 and 13. The floors are always different in size. These floors, with all-round eaves on them, represent the celestial floors of the Gods. The importance of pagodas in the field of religion consists of being places where the remains of the Buddha are preserved.
