Atop Wushan hill stood a fairly new Chinese style pavilion, Hangzhou Chenghuang Pagoda (Pavilion of the City God). The pavilion is big, seven storeys high, with elevators. We took the elevator all the way up to the sixth floor and had a magnificent panoramic view of the West Lake and part of the city. What impressed me the most were... More

I decided to visit this pagoda because I could see it all lit up from from the lake. I visited the pagoda the next morning as the entrance was about 10 minutes from my hotel. The pagoda sits atop a hill next to Hefang street, and you can start climbing the hill from Hefang street as well. The hill was... More

Once you hike to the top of Wushan Mountain from He Fang Jie, you can't miss Chenghuang Temple! There are many huge camphor trees on the grounds and surrounding areas as they are sacred trees in Buddhism (and they are also the city tree of Hangzhou!) Inside the pagoda, you can climb to almost all levels of the pagoda, but... More

Surprisingly enough I couldn't find the place in Tripadvisor so it seems I am the first to review it... Why surprisingly ? Just look at the pictures I have attached, as I am using to do, so you can understand what I mean.... The place is absolutely splendid. We saw it from far, actually when we walked from the West...

We sit down and had a couple soup, taste sweet but... More

Visit the Hangzhou Museum at the foot of the hill which you can exit from the middle of the hill. This will save the time needed to climb the hill. The City God Statue in the temple was the biggest I have ever seen. They provide free guided tour and the guide was friendly. With the lift at the Pagoda,... More

Big Chenghuang pagoda on Wu Shan is nice from outside but going inside was a waste of time. There was nothing indoors which attracted me and also weather & air quality was poor with low visibility so we couldn't even fully enjoy views from pagoda. Definitely, it was good exercise to walk uphill. Finally, at long last we strolled in... More

This is the tourist site on top of Wu Hill. This is quite a long uphill climb from Hefang Street but well worth it. The entrance fee costs RMB 30 per person and my three year old goes free.  On top there is a pavilion, a temple and something that looks like a big pagoda.  Temple is impressive. Outside is... More

I came to this place because I wanted to go to Hangzhou Museum but changed my mind. It's a nice walk, if you are fast you just need 30 Minutes to get to the top of Chenghuang Pagoda and there you have a really nice view over Hangzhou and Xihu. When I was there not many chinese which is also... More
