Pagoda of the Northern Temple


Pagoda of the Northern Temple is one of Suzhou's less restored and therefore more authentic, temple attractions. It was first built in the period of the Three Kingdoms, and rebuilt for several times.

The Northern Temple was founded in the third century A.D., once named "Kaiyuan Temple" and "Jieng Temple". The pagoda has nine storeys and eight sides with carving and colored patterns. It is said to be the tallest pagoda south of the Yangtze River.
