The name “Six Harmonies ”comes from the six Buddhist ordinances, meaning “harmonies of the heaven, earth, north, south, east, and west.” The pagoda was built in 970 AD by the King of Wuyue State. The purpose of the construction of the pagoda is to keep down the tidal bores of Qiantang River in ancient time. The Six Harmonies Pagoda is definitely a masterpiece of ancient Chinese architecture, the upturned eaves become progressively narrower towards the top. You can climb to the top floor, no doubt you can get a gorgeous view of the river and the bridge. Behind the pagoda, you may wander through a pagoda garden with scale reproductions of China’s famous pagodas, and a lot of mini pagodas with various artistic designs and architectural features.
