Gyeongju Tower in Gyeongju, South Korea is unique indeed. Built in 2007 the 269-foot tower is part of the Gyeongju World Culture Expo Park. What makes it truly unique is the cutout in the center. The shape is of the Hwanryongsa Temple’s Wooden pagoda. The 9-story pagoda stood for about 600 years. It was the tallest building in Asia until it was destroyed by Mongol invaders in the 13th Century.
Not far away is the Joongdo Tower, a replica of the same pagoda. The two buildings were united in a traditional wedding ceremony, you can watch a clip of that here. The Mayor stated the buildings symbolize a hope that Korea can be united one day.
