The Niujie Mosque - Dougong by Nayzak The Niujie Mosque - Dougong by Nayzak
Assalaamu alaikum [peace be to you],

Here's is a closer look at the Colourful dougong supporting the roof of the minaret in the Niujie Mosque in Beijing.

Dougong (斗拱 dǒugǒng) is a system of brackets unique to traditional Chinese architecture. These brackets, arranged like baskets of flowers, are set under the overhanging eaves, adding to the sumptuous magnificence of the buildings.

You can read more about Dougong here www.chinainfoonline.com/Chines…
