Japanology 13-3-09

Most pagodas were built to have a religious function, most commonly Buddhist, and were often located in or near temples.
This term may refer to other religious structures in some countries.
In Myanmar and Thailand, pagoda usually means the same as stupa or chaitya.
In Vietnam, pagoda is a more generic term referring to a place of worship, although pagoda is not an accurate word to describe a Buddhist temple.




The modern pagoda is an evolution of the Ancient Indian stupa, a tomb-like structure where sacred relics could be kept safe and venerated.
The architectural structure of the stupa has spread across Asia, taking on many diverse forms as details specific to different regions are incorporated into the overall design.
