Inside Leifeng Pagoda

This is definietly not something you can see as a common tourist. Normally we are not allowed to visit the inner chamber of the Leifeng pagoda, and this photo was taken by my friend when a special edition of the Hangzhou scenic spots were being filmed.
I forgot to take my camera home, so I have to 'borrow' her photos for a few days.
Looks like a tomb..and reminds me all those crazy mummy movies. ha

Alice,
Yes, they are actually digging "She li zi", that is the bones of a dead buddha.
or
"Sarīra" in Sanskrit,means Buddhist relics.
