A modern reconstruction of the original pagoda that collapsed in 1924. The views are amazing and the carvings that tell the story of the "White Snake Lady" are exquisite. The new construction sits above the ruins of the original structure, which were fascinating.

This is a great very old temple to visit. Admission is 40 yuan, but well worth the price. The views from the top are spectacular, as are the intricate wooden carvings around the insides of one of the lower floors. Definitely worth a visit.
