Rings in Asia and the Pacific Rim:
index by year of completion

This is an index to the 53 existing rings in Asia and the Pacific Rim region, in order by year of completion (to the current number of bells).  Instruments which were completed in the same year are listed in order by the city name without regard to the exact date on which the installation was finished.

After the year, a letter indicates that it is

C - when the complete instrument was installed;
E - when the instrument was enlarged from its previous size.

NOTE:  Only rings of 8 or more bells are indexed and described, but rings of 5 or 6 bells are identified below the table.
