Cau Pagoda, symbol of Hoi An City, Viet Nam

Cau Pagoda – as the name suggests – is a pagoda located on a bridge across a creek in the ancient town of Hoi An. Built in the early 17th century by Japanese merchants, this is the only building that has originated from the country of origin in history. The Japanese bridge is another name for the bridge.

Built by the Japanese, but Bridge Bridge bearing bold architectural special of Vietnam.

The first special thing is in the structure of the bridge. Bridge The bridge is about 18m long and is a bridge of bricks – that is, the bridge roofed with yin and yang above – a feature of Vietnamese architecture.

Covered bridge is quite unique, in the middle is the way through the ring bridge, the two sides have narrow corridors to make a resort with seven wooden compartments. Rather, all the pagodas and bridges are made of wood, lacquered and carved with many fine details in Vietnamese architecture – typically dragon, at the same time a little bit of Japanese style.

In 1990, Cau Pagoda was recognized as National Historical-Cultural Relic. Not only spiritual, the bridge also plays an important role in transport.

So far, the temple seems to have become an invaluable asset, formally chosen as the symbol of Hoi An.
