A couple of weeks ago I posted a picture of the drum in the Drum Tower of Xian. One of the interesting things about the Drum Tower is that it was constructed without the use of nails. Another thing is that the interior is richly and intricately decorated. This is the ceiling over the drum in the tower.

The picture above was scanned from a slide.
