Pagoda of Six Harmonies, Hangzhou

(4.1/5 based on 150+ 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.

  • 六和塔就真的是一座古佛寺塔,矗立在錢塘江畔~ 塔高七層樓,塔頂的山型塔尖,自遠古以來相傳是為鎮住錢塘江的大潮而設立的! 古佛塔看起來是歷史建築,黑白的建築色調,在肅穆之中還帶有些許宗教的神秘氣氛~ 塔頂遠眺錢塘江,清晰可見到錢塘江大橋,晨昏時分,觀賞塔外景緻,是非常賞心悅目的~~  more »
