Pagoda of Six Harmonies, Hangzhou

4.0
Looking out across the Qiantang River, Pagoda of Six Harmonies sits at the foot of Yuelu Hill, said to protect its shores from the river with sacred powers. An octagonal structure soaring 60 m (196.9 ft), the pagoda's exterior gives the illusion of a 13-story structure, while actually only containing seven interior floors. Examine the architecture of this majestic site, initially constructed in 970 CE and said to have served as a lighthouse for the Northern Song Dynasty. Wind your way up the central spiral staircase to one of the best views of the river, before taking a gentle stroll around the shrines and sculptures scattered in the pagoda's surrounding grounds.

No, it's not raining. A panoramic view of the West Lake includes harmonies, shopping and buying a tour of the car for a circle of 40 yuan per person. About a little while. Worth browsing.
