Yunyan Temple Pagoda, also known as Huqiu Pagoda, is said to be buried here in the Spring and Autumn Period. It was built in the Northern Song Dynasty, more than 1100 years ago. It is the first leaning Pagoda in China and one of the representative landscapes in Suzhou.
The Yunyan Temple Pagoda in Suzhou is located in the Huqiu Scenic Area and is also a famous Pagoda in ancient China. The ancient pagoda was first built in the late Zhou Dynasty of the Five Dynasties and was built in the Northern Song Dynasty. It is a famous Pagoda in the Song Dynasty both at home and abroad. Its fame lies not only in its antiquity, but also in the fact that it is more inclined than the Leaning Tower of Pisa. The ancient pagoda is the symbol of Huqiu and also a typical brick pagoda. The tower is 47.5 meters high and is the first leaning tower in China. Many tourists come here to take pictures near the tower.
Su Dongpo said that it was a pity that Suzhou did not visit Tiger Hill. As a matter of fact, it was well-known.
Huqiu Pagoda, also known as the Yunyan Temple Pagoda, was built in the ninth year of Renshou (601), Emperor Wendi of the Sui Dynasty. It was first built into a wooden pagoda and then destroyed. The existing Huqiu Pagoda was built in the eighth year of Ganyou in the latter Zhou Dynasty to the second year of Jianlong in the Song Dynasty (959-961). The tower system is planar octagonal, grade seven. The original top of the tower was destroyed by lightning. When it was rebuilt in 1956, a large number of precious cultural relics such as stone letters, sutras, bronze Buddhas, bronze mirrors and lotus bowls of Yue kiln celadon were found in the third layer. The Huqiu Pagoda is 47.5 meters high. Its body is made of bricks and weighs more than 6,000 tons. According to records, due to foundation reasons, since the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), the Huqiu Tower tilted northwest. The center of the top of the tower deviated from the bottom center by 2.3 meters, which is known as the "Leaning Tower of Oriental Pisa". In 1956, the Suzhou Municipal Government invited experts in ancient architecture to adopt iron hoop grouting to reinforce and renovate the pagoda. Finally, the pagoda was preserved. In 1961, it was listed as one of the key cultural relics protection units in China.
