Pagoda of Six Harmonies, Hangzhou
(4/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Cold in November and must have comfortable walking shoes. Get very close and tight on the left side to go up for young people, but to the simplest right for other people to go to 9th floor. Just that you could achieve more top of the temple, but nothing special.

  • Go to the pagoda from the Center for very long minutes 40. Inside the pagoda has not impressed at all. Will entrance. Raised on the upper tier, the panorama is interesting. Around the pagoda walked 30 minutes, there is a small garden pagodas where placed a copy of the most famous pagodas of all China, but garden started very, tracks are not erased, all grassed, but not all, pagodam approach, you can, but for free. If little time to Hangzhou, I advise you to take a walk by the Lake and there see pagoda it is uniquely interesting inside.
