The Six Harmonies Pagoda
The Six Harmonies Pagoda Hangzhou Reviews
Jul 29, 2006
Six Harmonies (Liuhe) Pagoda lies in Yuelun Hill on the north bank
of the Qiantang River in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province. The name "six
harmonies" comes from the six Buddhist ordinances, meaning
"harmonies of the heaven, earth, north, south, east, and west".
The pagoda was first built in 970 AD by the King of Wuyue State,
who intended to demonstrate his authority by conquering the evil
of the river tidal bore of the Qiantang River. The pagoda fell into
ruins and went through reconstruction many times before being listed
as one of the key national cultural heritages in 1961.
