At a special place on West Lake, it is a pagoda with long history. A lot of women come there at weekend. Everything seems peaceful to be there.

See the old tombs of late monks and the majestic pagodas where each level holds the remains of monks.

Nestled at the perimeter of West Lake this Buddhist pagoda is both an attractive temple and pagoda and a nice place to catch a glimpse of West Lake. You won't spend much time here but it makes for a good photo opportunity.

This pagoda was a nice break from the busy street traffic. The grounds were lovely and calming. There was no admission. Aside from the pagoda there was also beautiful plants, temples, statues, and views. A good walk if you're staying in the old quarter.

A calm, quiet, oasis which was not busy the afternoon we visited. It is stunning in its simplicity and amazing testament to the architects and engineers of its time. Relocated in the fifteenth century, it has been standing on its present site since 1842. Great to see locals still using it as a place of worship.
