Nanjing's famed "Porcelain Tower" is the pagoda that has been alive in American TV drama for quite a time, in a way that is surprisingly close to people’s life- Chinese take out.

How come Porcelain Tower has anything to do with take out in the United States? Well, look into the snapshots above. Have you noticed the box of the take out?

The red tower printed outside the box is by no means a nobody.

Yes, you got it, its prototype is exactly the Porcelain Tower.

The Porcelain Tower, also known as "Bao'en Temple", which means "Temple of Gratitude", was first built during the reign of Chinese Emperor Yong Le (1403-1425) in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) for his mother. But it was completely destroyed during the war between the Qing Imperial Court and the Taiping rebels in 1856.

The pagoda was reconstructed with dated technology and reopened to public last year.
