This pagoda is located in the southwestern corner of the county town of Yixian near Jinzhou City. First built in 1020 during the Liao Dynasty, it has undergone many repairs, but the original form remains unchanged.
The octagonal, solid-brick pagoda with thirteen levels of eaves stands 42.5 meters high. The first storey above the Sumeru pedestal is proportionally large and has niches on all sides. Inside each niche is a statue of Buddha with a bodhisattva on each side, all made of carved bricks and shaded by canopies. Above the recess containing the statue of Buddha is a pair of flying apsarases with a copper mirror inlaid in the middle, adding luster to the image of Buddha. Columns at the eight corners of the pagoda support the upper structure. The first level of eaves is supported by brackets; the other levels were made by stacking bricks one layer over the other. As the upper structure has been damaged, the form of the steeple is unknown.
