Located in the county town of Hunyuan, the pagoda was first constructed in 1158 during the Kin Dynasty and underwent major repairs between 1465 and 1487 during the Ming Dynasty. The main structure, however, still belongs to the Kin Dynasty.
More than thirty meters high, the octagonal pagoda has nine levels, a typical example of multi-eared pagodas of the Kin Dynasty. The lower part of the pagoda is a four-meter Sumeru pedestal with sculptures of singers, dancers, musicians, guardians, animals and plants around the sides. The images of the singers and dancers, all in different postures, are vivid, the guardians look bold and muscular, and the lions and other animals seem true to life. The front of the first storey of the pagoda has a door with a statue of Sakyamuni inside. The iron steeple has an iron bird on top that revolves with the wind just like a weather vane, a rare example among Buddhist pagodas in the country.
