The Daguan Pavilion is a wood-structure pagoda in Kunming's Daguan Park (Grand View Park). Built in 1696 and renovated in 1828 during the Qing Dynasty, the three-storey pavilion is one of the area's main features.

The pavilion features a 180 character poem describing the beauty and history of the area, the longest of its kind in the history of Chinese literature. It is now one of the top 10 most famous pavilions in China; the other nine are Tengwang Pavilion in Jiangxi, Yueyang Pavilion in Hunan, Yellow Crane Tower in Hubei, Guanque Tower in Shanxi, Penglai Pavilion in Shandong, Yuejiang Pavilion in Jiangsu, Tianxin Pavilion in Hunan, the Drum and Bell Towers in Shaanxi and Tianyi Pavilion in Zhejiang.

Admission: 20 yuan (US$3.27) / person
