Liuhe Pagoda: "ZHI TAN. A Song dynasty Buddhist abbot of kaihu Temple, Liuhe (six harmonies) pagoda.

Liuhe pogoda was first built in 971, afterwards destroyed in the war. By the southern song dynasty, ZHI TAN made up his mind to rebuild the pagoda, being alms, raising funds and enduring all kinds of hardship. In 1153, the pagoda was rebuilt and completed in 1163.

Now you can still enjoy the unique architecture of the pagoda of some 800 years ago. In commemoration of ZHI TAN's boundless beneficence the bronze statue for him is founded here in May 1995."
