Landmark Tourist Spot
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.
