The pagoda is next to Louguan Terrace, which used to be a famous Taoist spot, in Zhouzhi County of Xi'an.
No exact date of the pagoda's construction is available, but judging from its style, it is a relic of the Song Dynasty.
The octagonal, seven-storeyed, brick pagoda is about 32 meters high. A door on the front side of the first storey is 1.38 meters wide, while each side of the first storey measures 4.3 meters. The walls of the first storey are some 4 meters thick. Each storey, from the second storey up, has two doors, which are on different sides of alternating storeys up to the sixth and seventh storeys, when they are on the same sides. These last two storeys taper sharply, giving a distinctive structural feature to the pagoda. The pent roofs are very narrow and have brick brackets under them.
