Temple of a deity in Pennsylvania (6)


I believe the answer is:


'temple' is the definition.
(pagoda is a kind of temple)

'a deity in pennsylvania' is the wordplay.
'deity' becomes 'god' ('god' can be a synonym of 'deity'**).
'in' indicates putting letters inside.
'pennsylvania' becomes 'pa'.
'agod' put inside 'pa' is 'PAGODA'.

'of' is the link.

(Other definitions for pagoda that I've seen before include "place for devotees?" , "Eastern tiered tower" , "Temple - a GPO ad (anag)" , "Hindu temple shaped like pyramid" , "shrine" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
