of the most famed tourist attractions
in China. Enclosed by hills on three sides, the West Lake mirrors the surrounding landscape to form a panorama of great beauty. It covers l,235 acres (500 ha.) with a shoreline of 9 mi. (15 km.). Luxurious trees and flowers grow around the lake. It has been a scenic resort since the Tang Dynasty (618-907 A.D.). The Su Causeway and Bai Causeway divide the lake into three parts. For centuries, the West Lake has been well known both for its picturesque landscape and for cultural heritage surviving yet illustrating the past dynasties.
Lingyin Temple: This magnificent monastery was originally built in 326 A.D. and is one of the great attractions of Hangzhou. Used as a place for spiritual retreat, it was restored in the early part of the twentieth century. Its main temple contains many bas-relief carvings of Buddhas.
Harmonies Pagoda: A perfect symbol of brick-and-wood structure built in the ancient China. This pagoda was built in 970 A.D. and rises high over forested hills to a height of 198 ft. (58.8 m.). It is constructed with thirteen stories on the outside and seven on the inside. From here one will have a good view of the river meandering far into the distance. The grounds are carefully tended and have been planted with flowers which bloom all year round.
