700-year-old temple half-submerged by floods, but still stands

While bridges have collapsed and buildings have been swept away by the recent record flooding on the Yangtze River, one 700-year-old temple still remains in place, even half-submerged.
Built way back in the Song dynasty, the Guanyin Pavilion in Ezhou, Hubei province has long been an impressive sight. The temple is built out on an island in the middle of the Yangtze which often goes underwater amid the summer flooding.
In this latest case, with the region seeing the second-highest rainfall in half a century, the temple itself was halfway submerged underneath the rushing waters of the  Yangtze but evidently continues to stand strong.

At this rate, maybe itll make it another 700 years.
