Ci Shou Tower is located at the top of the mountain, is the symbol of the Jinshan Mountain. Follow the internal rotary wooden ladder can go straight to the top of the tower. Down the railing, Zhenjiang City can see the vast east, the mountains into the magnificent momentum. Under Cishou Tower, there are Jinshan Temple Zhenshan Treasure － Zhouding, Jinshan Picture, Copper Drum, Jade Belt, and it is called "Four Treasures".
The Cishou Pagoda is very eye-catching on the top of Jinshan Mountain. People will know it is Jinshan Temple when they see this pagoda from a distance. It is not possible to climb the tower now, but there are many estimates around the tower, such as the "Haitian List" Royal Book, Fahai Cave, Bailong Cave, etc.
Cishou Pagoda is located on the northwest peak of Jinshan Mountain. It was built in Qiliang more than 1400 years ago. The tower is 30 meters high. This tower is exquisite, beautiful, and tall. The tower is a brick and wood structure, eight sides and seven levels, with a rotating wooden ladder inside, and railings on the outside. There are scenery on each side, and the scenery is different in each layer. In the last year of Song Zhezong Yuanfu, the prime minister once recommended his mother in Jinshan Temple, and built a tower in the north and south, one "Jianci Tower" and the other "Jianshou Tower". In the early Ming Dynasty, the twin towers collapsed. After the twin towers collapsed, they were rebuilt during the reign of Guangxu, which coincided with the 60th birthday of Cixi, hence the name Cishou Tower.
The tower in the Jinshan Temple is a place to experience, there are many people to see
Cishou Pagoda is located in Jinshan Park, standing on the top of Jinshan Mountain, and it seems to rise up into the sky. The tower we see now was rebuilt for Empress Cixi's birthday in the Guangxu reign of the Qing Dynasty, and the congratulatory message "Heaven and Earth Are Together" is also engraved under the tower. The tower is 7 stories high and has eight sides. It is said that you can overlook the entire Jinshan Temple when you climb to the top of the tower. Unfortunately, it is no longer possible to climb the tower. Of course, it is understandable for the protection of cultural relics.
There are many ways to visit Cishou Pagoda. Most people will choose to take a closer look or climb to Cishou Pagoda, but I recommend that we might as well take a long view of Cishou Pagoda. Because when you look at this tower from a distance, you can feel that it is the highest point in the entire Jinshan Temple, and you can also feel how integrated this tower is with the entire Jinshan and Jinshan Lake.
Many people’s travel photos mentioned that the Cishou Pagoda is a place that can be climbed high and far away. However, the Jinshan Temple Scenic Area has temporarily suspended the opening of the pagoda in order to repair the entire pagoda. We can no longer climb the pagoda like in the past. Go up to the pagoda to see the beauty of the entire Jinshan Temple, but we can stand below and look up at the pagoda's majestic wind. I don't know why, every time I see this tower, I think of the legend of the new white lady.
