Pagoda of Six Harmonies (Liùhétǎ)

Pagoda of Six Harmonies (Liùhétǎ) Review

Atop Moon Mountain stands the impressive Pagoda of Six Harmonies. Those who climb to the top of the seven-story pagoda are rewarded with great views across the Qiantang River. Originally lanterns were lighted in its windows, and the pagoda served as a lighthouse for ships navigating the river. On the 18th day of the eighth lunar month, the pagoda is packed with people wanting the best seat for Qiantang Reversal. On this day the flow of the river reverses itself, creating large waves that for centuries have delighted observers. Behind the pagoda in an extensive park is an exhibit of 100 or so miniature pagodas, representing every Chinese style. The pagoda is 2½ km (1½ miles) south of West Lake.
