People playing Mahjong next to the Xisi Ta (West Tower or West Pagoda) in Kunming

In Kunming you’ll find these “twin towers” constructed in the late eighth or early ninth century AD, under the rule of the Kingdom of Nanzhao.

The east tower is located 200 meters to the east and situated in the Dongsi Tower Tea Garden (Dong Si Ta Cha Hua Yuan).
