Pagodas are, like mosques, true houses of prayer; ?Tis prayer that church bells waft upon the air; Kaaba and temple, rosary and cross, All are but divers tongues of world-wide prayer.

    المعابد هي ، مثل المساجد ، دور حقيقية للصلاة ؛ هذه الصلاة التي أجراس الكنيسة على الهواء. الكعبة والمعابد والوردية والصليب ، كلها ألسنة الغواصين للصلاة في جميع أنحاء العالم.

    pagodas، مانند مساجد، خانه های واقعی دعا؛ نماز که نماز کلیسا را بر روی هوا می گذارد؛ کابا و معبد، کبوتر و صلیب، همه کسانی هستند که زبان نزول نماز در سراسر جهان را دارند.

    les pagodes sont, comme les mosquées, de véritables maisons de prière; ? cette prière que les cloches de l'église flottent dans l'air; la kaaba et le temple, le chapelet et la croix, ne sont que des langues diverses de prière mondiale.
