Liuhe Pagoda Features

Highlights
Legends have it that the Pagoda was built in order to calm the tidal waters of Qiantang river and as a navigational aid. The temple overlooks the sparkling Qiantang River and the West Lake. When you finally reach the top of the temple by climbing the spiral stone staircase, you can have a spectacular view of the grand bridge over the Qiantang River.
The pagoda is mainly constructed of wood and brick and it has an octagonal shape. The temple has the appearance of a thirteen-storied building while it actually has o­nly seven interiors. The ceilings of every floor are beautifully decorated and there are colorful paintings of animals, flowers and birds. Each floor has a strange zigzag corridor, a small chamber and of course the exterior and the interior walls. Such is the structure of the Pagoda that the sun’s light creates various hues o­n the temple surface.
