The eight dagobas in a row in front of Ta'er Temple are not very big, but all in a line they look magnificent.
The dagobas were built in 1776 in the Qing Dynasty and they basically have the same shape. Every dagoba has a huge square base on which sits a Sumeru pedestal. A five-tiered surbase supports the inverted-bowl-style main body. The steeple is formed by a thirteen-tier main body, a canopy, a crescent and a bead, the typical style of Lamaist dagobas in the Qing Dynasty.
Many ancient dagobas depict through carvings or paintings the life story of Sakyamuni, from his birth to his death, but this is seldom done by the dagobas themselves. Dagobas in eight places in India commemorate him, but they are scattered. The eight dagobas in Ta'er Temple, however, depict the eight events concerning Sakyamuni and they are all in one place. This should be regarded as very creative.
