White Pagoda Mountain Park is well known far and wide for the white pagoda towering above all the surrounding buildings.
The tower is said to be built in Yuan Dynasty and reconstructed in Ming Dynasty. It is white all over with a green top and a round base.
On south of the white pagoda, there are another three temples with the Bodhisattva palace on the north and some other palaces in east and west.
It is located in north of Lanzhou City Capital of Gansu Province. Standing on the 17 m.(56 ft.) high tower, you can get a panoramic view of the whole Lanzhou City. The iron bridge spanning over the Yellow River not far away together with this tower forms a magnificent and eye-catching scene for Lanzhou city to be proud of.
