The pagoda, situated on Lingyun Mountain east of Leshan City, is so named because it stands on Lingbao Peak.
The square, thirteen-storey, multi-eave, brick pagoda is forty meters high. There are actually only five storeys inside, and people can go to the top of the pagoda and enjoy views of Jiazhou. The pagoda is thus an improvement on other multi-eave pagodas, which cannot be climbed. Judging from the pagoda's appearance and structure it must have been built in the Song Dynasty.
