Pavilion of Five Location surrounds the Baoyun Bronze Pavilion. It was built up high and not allowed to enter the building. The unique part of the pavilion is that it comes with a traditional Chinese Pavilion in the middle and and small pavilions with stairway on each side.

The signboard was written as:

"This religious building's name, Wu Fang, means five locations: east, south, west, north, and center. According to Buddhist belief, there is a Buddha governing each of the five locations. A portrait of the Buddha would be hung in the niche of the wall when monks chanted in front of the pavilion."

In Chinese: 五方阁 (Wu Fang Ge)

Directions: In Summer Palace.
