These wonderful pagodas were in 982 A.D. during the Song dynasty by the Wang Wenhan brothers in honour of their teacher who helped them pass the imperial civil service exams. They are both octagonal and are 33 meters high. There used to be a temple hall behind the pagodas, remains of which can be found in the garden.
