China's Noah's Ark: 700-year-old temple which has withstood numerous floods amazes the internet
A pavilion in China that has withstood numerous flooding has been dubbed 'pavillion strong' following the most recent submersion.
The 700-year-old temple has refused to buckle during the most recent flood which saw waters rise to some 35-feet-high over the past few weeks.
Located in Ezhou on China's Yangze river, Guanying Pavilion has remained intact despite various attempts by the weather.

When things were built to last. Not much built today will still be standing in hundreds of years.

The internet is largely a collection of wires, electricity. I'm pretty sure that it can't be amazed about much at all. Internet users however might be slightly surprised by the temple's survival.
