A pagoda is the general term in the English language for a tiered tower with multiple eaves common in East Asia. While some pagodas are used as Taoist houses of worship, most of them were for religious purpose, most commonly Buddhist, and were often located in or near temples. As noted by the photographer "It was the first snow of the season. This stone pagoda at BoWonSa temple near Seosan is made at the Goryeo dynasty, an ancient Korean state (918-1392)."
