The Dragon and Tiger Pagoda at Lotus Lake is a nice place to visit. The seven storey structure is worth climbing to get a nice view of the surroundings. In order to climb it you will need to enter the mouth of the Dragon or Tiger. Take your pick!
While you are there please look out for the Dragon Tortoise which is located at the entrance of the zig zag bridge. The Dragon Tortoise guards the Bao Sheng Da Di Temple (Ciji Palace) opposite the road. The Dragon Tortoise is also seen carrying a money bag on its back. The belief is that in order to gain wealth, you should touch the head of the Dragon Tortoise and then the money bag before putting your hand, with clasped fist, into your pocket.
Before you can climb the two pagodas, you will also need to walk on the nine curves bridge. It is said that the sharp turns on the bridge is to throw the evil spirits off track.
Climbing the pagodas requires you to walk up a spiral staircase. Do take breaks on each level if you feel tired and admire the view outside. The view on each level offers you a different perspective of the area.
