no one
your forgiveness - except maybe yourself”

“you owe no one your forgiveness - except maybe yourself”

So much to see at Kew Gardens at the moment like the Dale Chihuly glass sculptures (shown here next to William Chambers’s Temple of Bellona of 1760), Wolfgang Butress’s huge walk-in multi-sensory sculpture The Hive, plus the famous Great Pagoda (also Chambers) is looking better than ever with its newly-reinstated carved and painted dragons. It’s now possible to climb the 253 steps (9 stories) to take in views back to London. Also saw the amazing Marianne North gallery for the first time. #kewgardens #kew #dalechihuly #williamchambers #wolfgangbutress #greatpagoda #herebedragons #viewsoflondon #greatdayout #mariannenorthgallery

These benches are comprised of 26 useful, unusual and treasured tree species which once grew in Kew Gardens. What a fantastic idea, the definition between them all is great. #kewgardens #greatpagoda #bench #trees #wood #myhappyplace

Went to Kew. Took a picture of the #greatpagoda. They wanted £5 to climb it though. No thanks, I can climb stairs for free at home. Looks nicer from outside anyway.

The Great Pagoda, Kew Gardens.

With an absolutely astonishing new style, the Great Pagoda reopened for every visitor of the Kew Gardens. And finally, after more than two centuries, the dragons came back with stupendous colours!

La Gran Pagoda de la Oca Salvaje es una visita imprescindible en tu viaje turístico a Xian, cuyo principal centro de atracción es, sin lugar a dudas, el Ejército de Guerreros de Terracota.

Situada en la zona sur de la ciudad de Xian, dentro del complejo del Templo budista Da Ci´en, también conocido como Templo de la Gracia, la Gran Pagoda de la Oca Salvaje es el característico edificio religioso budista de varios niveles tan habitual en países asiáticos.

Construida en el año 652 durante el reinado del emperador Taizong de la dinastía Tang, tenía como objetivo ser un almacén donde guardar distintos elementos y productos budistas que se traían de la India.

Fotografía realizada en Septiembre de 2009.

Great Pagoda, Kew Gardens.
⚬
Completed in 1762 as a gift to Princess Augusta, by the founder of the botanic gardens at Kew. It once belonged to the royal family and was used as a summer residence. It was one of the earliest bird's eye view of London.
⚬
253 steps takes you to the top, the restoration reintroduced the 80 dragons that adorn the roofs, some of which are gilded with real gold.

The soaring heights of the Great Pagoda at Kew. Designed Sir William Chambers and completed in 1762 as a gift for Princess Augusta, the founder of the botanic gardens at Kew. 🐲
And last year it was restored and reopened so that you can once again ascend its 253 steps for the marvellous view!

The fearsome dragons guarding the Great Pagoda in Kew Gardens were part of the original 18th century design, but in the 1780s they mysteriously disappeared after only 20 years on display (although it’s thought they were probably removed due to poor weathering). 🐲
In 2018, an extensive restoration project was completed, the pagoda was reopened so that people could once again enjoy the extraordinary view from the top, and 80 beautiful new dragons were returned to their lofty perches. 💚
Eight of the dragons were hand carved and painted, but the other 72 were 3D printed out of carbon fibre! 🐉
