Introduction

If you are having a Hangzhou package tour,our Hangzhou travel guide will introduce you to see the Six Harmonies Pagoda,which is one of the Hangzhou tourist attractions,thus giving you a complete sightseeing in Hangzhou.
The Six Harmonies Pagoda, under protection as a key national cultural relic today,was constructed first in 970 during the Northern Song Dynasty to suppress the tidewaters. Today the brick-and-wood structure of the Six Harmonies Pagoda remains largely intact.

Major repairs were made again in 1524 during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) and in 1735 and 1900 during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), but these repairs were on the outside eaves only. The brick body of the pagoda remained the same as in the Song Dynasty. Today some Song Dynasty inscriptions can still be found inside the pagoda. The wooden corridors around the pagoda's thirteen floors were built in 1900. The pagoda stands 59.89 meters high. From here you can have a good view of the Qiantang River meandering far into the distance.

In the pagoda there are more than two hundred sites of brick carvings, which feature a wide range of motifs, including megranate, lotus, phoenix, peacock, parrot, lion, kylin and so on. These brick carvings are rare material proofs of Chinese ancient architectures.

With a view of Qiantang River, the pagoda presents a quiet image of age-old majesty. Looking out from the top of the pagoda, sightseers can see as far as the misty horizon, enjoying the unforgettable, breathtaking scenery.
