"Flower Pagoda" Six Banyan Temple Tip by Willettsworld

Six Banyan Temple, Guangzhou: 17 reviews and 32 photos

The Flower Pagoda (Hua Ta) was built at the same time as the original temple in AD 537 but was later rebuilt in 1097. It was rebuilt again in 1373 after a fire in the early Ming Dynasty period, and restored in 1900. The 187-ft (57m) high octagonal pagoda has become a symbol of the city and appears to have nine stories from the outside, but in fact has a total of 17. It is crowned by a richly decorated bronze column weighing 5 tonnes. It's a hard climb to the top but the views are worth it

Open: 8am-5pm. Admission: RMB5 plus RMB10 to climb the pagoda.
