This towering pavilion is one of the three most notable pavilions on the south side of the Yangtze River. Chinese intelligentsia come to this pavilion to write articles, host banquets, and other cultural activities. For its prominence, sheer height, architectural style, and size, it’s a favorite with tourists.
Displaying the typical architecture of southern China, this pagoda was constructed during the Tianyou reign period (904-907). It is seven stories high with eight sides, red railings, green tiles and upturned eaves. It gets its name from the gold rope that was discovered when it was built.
