#tripaway the Leifeng pagoda in Hangzhou is a must see attraction in the city! it stands on Leifeng Peak of Sunset Hill to the south of West Lake, echoing the Baochu Pagoda in the north. It is the oldest colorful bronze pagoda in China.

If you are visiting the West Lake scenic area, you'll probably see Leifeng Pagoda from any spot. Unfortunately, the real tower collapsed in the 20th century: the ruins are well preserved inside of the stunning new pagoda. Visit it in the evening to enjoy the lights and a great view of the West Lake. And always remember that it is within the walking reach if you are already at the lakeside, so enjoy a nice stroll.

The moving legend of Leifeng Pagoda must have been familiar to everyone. In fact, there is no white lady in it. It is the pagoda built by the King Wu Yue of the Five Dynasties in order to celebrate the birth of Wang Xi and his son, and to pray for the construction of the Buddhas snails. A lot of cultural relics were unearthed during the excavation of the site. Among them, the Ashoka Golden Pagoda is the most famous.
The new tower was built on the old site. The base and the remains of the original tower were seen. There was a wooden carving on the upper floor about the white snake. The work was beautiful and lifelike.
Take a look at the West Lake on the tower. "Lei Feng Xi Zhao" is listed as one of the ten scenic spots of the West Lake, but the winter wind is not suitable for more.
I turned around the West Lake several times ...There were not many tourists. She climbed the Leifeng Tower to watch the beautiful scenery of the West Lake. Lei Fengxi Zhao True and true.🌈🌈🌈
Leifeng Pagoda is one of the ten scenic spots in West Lake, Hangzhou. It is located on the Xizhao Mountain on the south bank of Hangzhou West Lake. Whenever the sun sets, the pagoda casts a shadow on the lake creating a picturesque view. It is called the "Lei Feng Sunset Landscape." Many people's sentimental feelings towards Leifeng Pagoda originate from the legend of Bai Niangzi. Although the old pagoda toppled in 1924, a new pagoda was constructed on the original tower base, retaining the pavilion structure prior to the burning of the old tower. The new pagoda was constructed to replicate the style, design and size of the original pagoda during the Southern Song Dynasty. There are elevators and air conditioning inside.
