Six Harmonies Pagoda
The Six Harmonies Pagoda stands south of
the lake in an amazing situation which affords great
views over the nearby Qiantang River. The Pagoda was
built by a Wu King during the Song Dynasty who intended
that the temple would illustrate his power to the evil
spirits and scare away any floods or tidal waves from
the nearby Qiandang River!
The Six Harmonies Pagoda is situated on
the top of the Yuerun Mountain, is 59.89 meters tall
and has eight floors. The views from the top are spectacular
and ironically, many people now come here to watch the
waterfalls nearby in the heavy rain period.
Close to the pagoda a "Pagoda Park"
has recently opened up. This little park has an exhibition
which details the history of the pagoda and the culture
and symbols associated with it.
