The Iron Pagoda of Youguo Temple (佑國寺), Kaifeng City, Henan province, is a Buddhist Chinese pagoda built in 1049 during the Song dynasty (960–1279) of China. The pagoda is so-named not because it is made of iron, but because its color resembles that of iron. It is a brick pagoda tower built on the location of a previous wooden one that had been burnt down by lightning fire in 1044. Along with the Liuhe, Lingxiao, Liaodi, Pizhi, and Beisi pagodas, it is seen as a masterpiece of Song dynasty architecture.

  • The tower was once called open treasure pagoda Tower Park after welding pull, and you will see. Looks very beautiful and look at them, but scenery from the top. However, the tower no lighting other than the entrance near the narrow stairs, and on steep do not reach the tower at the top and 13 first Observatory more than scratched the crowding the space. So there is hope out in each stage from there just is. As a result, than look out slowly "footing, after an injury," "How do I pass on the inside?", etc. of anxiety was also obvious. Inside the tower at the entrance and would recommend admission restrictions, we recommend you visit early in the morning if you climb the Tower, I think, but considering the various risk and, in.

  • Tie Ta is a pagoda in Iron Tower Park. An extra entrance ticket is required. To climb the tower is somewhat tiresome, but the view from the top is beautiful. 
  • Note that when you walked a few hundred metres from the entrance of the Park Tower located wooden tower, climb. Note 10-feet to climb the spiral staircase so narrow and dark, looking out from a small window.
