The stone pagoda on the hillside was built during the reign of Emperor Qianlong of the Qing Dynasty, The octagonal pagoda has seven storeys, all made of marble. It is a solid multi-eared structure with no doors or windows. On all eight sides of the body there are carved statues of Buddha, religious stories of Buddhism and various ornamental carvings. The story of Sakyamuni is depicted in pictures carved around the neck of the Sumeru pedestal. The exquisite workmanship represents the artistic style at the height of the Qing Dynasty.
The steeple is a small Lamaist dagoba, a style popular during the Ming and Qing dynasties.
The pagoda is fairly well preserved, with the exception of ornamental carvings on lower sections that were damaged by the allied forces of the eight powers in 1900.
