The pagoda is the most sacred structure in Asia. Built as part of a Buddhist temple or monastery, a pagoda is a place for worship and serves as a shrine for holy objects. This tapering tiered tower is hexagonal in shape. Each story projects an upward curving tiled roof, culminating into a point. According to Feng Shui masters, the pagoda is also a powerful protector, to ward off ill-seeking business competitors, as well as ward off illnesses. Place it on your desk to enhance your career or on a bookshelf to enhance education.
