The Pagoda of the Heavenly Mirror (天鏡の塔, Tenkyō-no-Tō) is a giant pagoda that appears in the Brilliant route of Brilliant Pagoda or Haze Castle. It is located in Devanagara, the imperial capital of Mugenri. It is where the Great Mirror was located. Not much is known about the pagoda, but it's implied that Tenkai Zuifeng knows when it was built, how many floors it has and what it signified. Tenkai also says that Tsurubami Senri really liked the Pagoda of the Heavenly Mirror.[1]

General Information[edit]

The Pagoda of the Heavenly Mirror is approximately 15,500 meters (≈ 9.6 miles) tall, including the floors still under construction.[2]; and, according to Suzumi Kuzu, "easily 2000 stories tall".[3] It is said that the pagoda gets taller every year and provides trials to those who try to climb its interior. It is a place of great religious and cultural significance in Devanagara, and even the Imperial Emperor is permitted entry only during their coronation rite.[4]

Heavenly Mausoleum[edit]

The Heavenly Mausoleum (天上陵, Tenjōryō) is one of the many floors of the pagoda and is where the past members of the royal bloodline are, enshrined and worshipped. One can talk with these past members at the mausoleum.[5] Fujiwara no Iyozane's parents, who were killed by Ooama no Ake no Mitori in a coup d'état, are also buried here. It is said that unless one climbs the pagoda from the inside, you cannot reach the Heavenly Mausoleum in the truest sense of the word[6], although it remains unclear what this means.

Floating outside the mausoleum is the Great Mirror (大鏡, Ōkagami), a gigantic mirror that had a variety of magical properties and which was used by the Fujiwara dynasty of Devanagara to uphold their dominance in the city. It sits on an ornate stand before which is a large platform with a few steps leading up to the mirror. During the events of Brilliant Pagoda or Haze Castle, it was broken by Mitori.
