The

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.
