Six Harmonies Pagoda

The Six Harmonies Pagoda

The Six Harmonies Pagoda is overlooking the Qiantang River,in Hangzhou and is one of the true masterpieces of ancient Chinese architectures.Originally the pagoda was built during the Northern Song Dynasty (386-581) by the ruler of the Wuyue State. The name Liuhe comes from the six Buddhist ordinances and it is said that the reason for building this pagoda is to calm the tidal waters of the Qiantang River,and as a navigational aid.

The current pagoda was rebuilt during the Southern Song Dynasty(420-589) with construction of wood and brick.It is octagonal in shape and some 59.89 meters (196 feet) in height,it also has the appearance of being a thirteen-story structure,though it only has seven interior stories.There is a spiral staircase leading to the top floor and upon each of the seven ceilings are carved and painted figures including animals,flowers,birds and characters.Each story of the pagoda consists of four elements,the exterior walls,a zigzagged corridor,the interior walls and a small chamber.Viewed from outside,the pagoda appears to be layered-bright on the upper surface and dark underneath.That is a harmonious alternation of light and shade.

Upon ascending the pagoda,visitors will have a spectacular view of the Qiantang River Bridge spanning the surging tides of the Qiantang River.
