Photos[edit]

Guys, it is very urgent to put some photos here. It is described as the seven wonders of world, but no picture here is present.Caglarkoca 14:46, 6 July 2007 (UTC)

  • Well ok, but wikipedia has no funds to buy photos... I've upgraded the tag to {{reqphoto|in=China}} that might help. Kappa 01:12, 7 July 2007 (UTC)

well yes a photo of this wonder could be useful —Preceding unsigned comment added by 213.255.240.69 (talk) 13:26, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

Well, if you read an article, you should know that you all may thank a certain Mr. Hong Xiuquan for that- how can there be recent photos if the building has been reduced to rubble for over 150 years? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 79.202.174.115 (talk) 18:05, 19 January 2011 (UTC)

Reconstruction[edit]

The line that says the Porcelain tower is under reconstruction has an valid link. Is this true? I've heard nothing to support it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 128.135.224.150 (talk) 21:52, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

http://news.dayoo.com/society/201101/10/61961_103965705.htm is not necessarily a reliable source though (if you can read Chinese, it says that a rich entrepreneur contributed a billion yuan for the purpose of recontruction; it's also very high on the priority list of the Nanjing government). Furthermore, during my visit to Nanjing last time, there was an exhibit on the Bao'en Si which seemed to strongly hint towards said reconstruction. Alas, no sources that are more reliable around. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 79.202.174.115 (talk) 18:04, 19 January 2011 (UTC)

Number of steps?[edit]

The article says it was 260 feet tall but had just 130 steps. Does this make sense? Were the steps really large or something? --24.21.149.124 (talk) 06:08, 24 December 2008 (UTC)
