Da Qin

Da Qin is a pagoda[?] built about 640 AD by early Christians who came to Chang'an (now Xi'an) over the Silk Road.

The temple still exists and is located on the grounds of Lou Guan temple, about 50 miles southwest of Xi'an. It has a decided lean due to the severe Shaanxi earthquake in 1556. Da Qin was "rediscovered" in 1998 and its roots in early Chinese Christianity were recognized.
