An exquisite three-story tower overlooking Dongting Lake, Yueyang Pavilion (Yueyang Lou) poignantly raises the tips of its roofs towards the heavens, resembling a giant bird in flight or an ancient warrior’s helmet. One of the three great towers south of the Yangtse River, this architectural treasure dates back to the fourth cenutury CE, with the original building constructed in the third century BCE. Made entirely out of wood with no metal nails or beams, this fine 15 m (49 ft) high structure stands as a masterpiece of classical Chinese military joinery. Enjoy views of the lake, observing busy docks and ships, or take a stroll in the scenic garden surrounding the pavilion. A pedestrian street nearby offers good restaurants. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Yueyang holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Yueyang Pavilion (Yueyang Lou) and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

Yueyang Pavilion (Yueyang Lou) Reviews
21年前我和女儿来过岳阳楼，今天和老伴一起再次来到岳阳楼。 相隔二十多年，我仍然难忘那岳阳楼的盔顶重檐还有那郭沫若题写的金字大匾。 走进公园，看上次来时还没有的唐、宋、元、明、清五个朝代时的岳阳楼铜制微缩模型，看供奉着范仲淹和滕子京的双公祠，看新碑廊中的碑刻。 走上“南极潇湘”牌坊前的石阶，过“南极潇湘”牌坊，过仙梅亭，我们来到了岳阳楼前。上次来岳阳楼时正在修葺，楼外搭着脚手架，楼内只能参观一层。... more »21 years ago, my daughter and I came to Yueyanglou, and today together with his wife came to Yueyanglou. More than 20 years apart, I still remember that Yueyanglou helmet top eaves and Guo Moruo inscribed the big plaque. Go into the park, see the last time there was no Tang, song, Yuan, Ming, Qing Five dynasties of the Yueyanglou copper model, look at the worship of Fan Zhong fan and Teng Temple, see the new tablet inscriptions. Embark on the "South Pole Xiaoxiang" archway before the stone steps, the "South Pole Xiaoxiang" arch, over the Xian Mei Pavilion, we came to the Yueyanglou before. Last came to the Yueyanglou was repaired, outside the building with scaffolding, the building can only visit one floor. Today came to Yueyanglou before, no scaffolding of the Yueyanglou more beautiful, still is the helmet top eaves, still hung Guo Moruo inscribed "Yueyanglou" big plaque. Into Yueyanglou, the last saw the "Yueyanglou" false carving screen is still there. Go to the second floor, the carving screen here is the last time I did not see the authentic. I am not engaged in cultural relics, for me who is really who fake, who is more distant, who is more valuable is not important. In my eyes they are crafts, the length of time, the value of the level does not affect my appreciation of crafts. What I value is the beauty in them and the hidden stories of them. In fact, two carved screen I like, false carving screen is a century ago, after all, cultural relics. I also like the film "Baling Thieves" with the theme of true and false carving screen, the greedy person no matter how powerful he is, how strong, all have no good end. On the third floor, I saw the Chairman Mao calligraphy of Du Fu's "Deng Yueyanglou", both sides also have "shuitianyise" and "风月无边" couplets. Standing in front of the third floor window, see is not the "shuitianyise". Poor visibility today, it's a little hard to tell where the water is. We also visited the Xian Mei, three Drunk pavilion, toured the "South Pole Xiaoxiang" and "North Tong Wu Gorge" Arch, visited the tomb of Joe Cole. Came to the Yueyanglou under the Yueyanglou. Through the Yueyanglou of the West Gate, went down the high steps, came to the river, we saw the point of Taiwan, Iron Flail, Huai Fu Pavilion. Standing on the edge of Dongting Lake, railing, look at the lake on board ship to the boat, a bit comfortable, a little leisurely.

学生のころに習った杜甫の漢詩「岳陽楼に登る」に搭乗する楼閣です。洞庭湖が綺麗に臨めてよかったです。その当時の建物ではありませんが、悠久の時を感じた次第です。杜甫が歌ったように、年を取って親類や友人からの便りが絶え、帰郷を思ってもそれがかなわないということは今の時分でもあることで、今も昔も人々の思いは変わらないものだと考えました。 more »It is a Pavilion aboard I learned when I was a student in du Fu's poems climb the Yueyang Tower. Ni臨mete beautiful Dongting Lake is good. It is up to is not in the building at that time, I felt for all eternity. I thought that took years, as sung by Du Fu homecoming I constantly heard from relatives and friends, it is not always possible is in season now, now people think the same..
