Jin Dynasty Pagoda with Many Nearby Attractions
Mar 2015
The pagoda itself is about average, but my Very Good rating is based on a number of other attractions close to the pagoda, some of which are not listed yet on Trip Advisor. The pagoda was begun in the Tang Dynasty and rebuilt in 1177 during the Jin. Near the base of the pagoda is a group of petrified tree trunks. Nearby is a stone arch built in 1623 during the Ming, the Sino-Japanese Friendship Arboretum, ancient rammed-earth city wall, a temple, and the City Museum which so far is not listed on Trip Advisor. Not far away is a Warring States chariot burial tucked away in the midst of a residential neighborhood which almost no one knows about, and a few kilometers away is the world-class Guo State Tombs, Chariot Burial, and Museum. All these are photographed extensively and appear on my GaryLeeTodd.com website. There is also a swan lake nearby which, I believe, has been reviewed, and since I'm an expert on Chinese history and not waterfowl, I shall skip that attraction. The arch, museum, temple, wall, and peace garden are all a short walk from the pagoda and can all be easily viewed in a morning or afternoon.
