There are a number of pagodas, bridges and waterways, which interconnect to guide you (and all the other people) around the site.

Though thought to be first built in the 12th century and then later burned, it was poet and Imperial Enovy Wang Xiancheng who is believed to have begun what is seen today.

Top Descriptions

The Tiger Hill scenic spot is perhaps one of the most worthwhile attractions in . Considering it is in the city, this park has relatively big grounds with a mix of flower displays, ancient buildings, and a walking path. The famous Tiger Hill pagoda is reportedly over 1000 years old and is perhaps worth a trip to the scenic area for alone.

Top Tips

If you have come this far by taxi, consider taking the on foot back into the town centre. It seems to be one of the quietest walks through the city.
Although the park can be busy, the walking path that circles it is still pleasant to stroll (especially when compared with the even busier ).
To reach the pagoda requires climbing a couple of flights of stairs, but this is well worth it for the sight of this ancient tower.
