Fodor's Review

Built into this rectangular rock with sheer cliffs is an impressive 12-story pagoda, constructed by Emperor Qianlong (1736–96) during the Qing Dynasty. Wall carvings and historical inscriptions describing the construction of the building can be seen along the circuitous stairway that leads from the center of the pagoda to the top.
