One Pillar Pagoda

The 11th-century wooden shrine, revered for its fertility and healing properties, was burnt by the French in the 1950's and is now replaced by a concrete one and is still a popular destination. To honor the symbol of purity in Buddhism the pagoda is built to look like a lotus blossom.
