China

Pagoda Forest at the Shaolin Temple (fig.) in Henan, features 228 chedi, that contain the ashes of the abbots and important monks that once lived in this Buddhist monastery.

 

The levels of each pagoda is always odd in number and varies from one to seven, based on the achievements of the Buddhist masters they were built for.
