Liulige Tower

Looking west from Diecui Tower in Jingxinzhai one sees a high structure--the Liulige Tower. The four sides of the square tower are lined with glazed tiles and bear l,376 small Buddha statues, also made of glazed tiles.






They were built in 1543. The five waterborne pavilions are connected by zigzag bridges. The one in the middle is the largest. In old days the emperor and his consorts came here to fish, watch fireworks or admire the moon.
