Twin Pagoda Monastery

Twin Pagoda Monastery Travel Guide

The Twin Pagoda Monastery is located southeast of the railway station in Taiyuan City. It is called the Twin Pagoda because it has two 53-meter-tall sister pagodas containing 13 floors each. Built in 1608, the pagodas are made of brick and stone and are structured with exquisite brick-sculptured brackets and glazed, flying eaves.  The two pagodas became the symbol of Taiyuan.

In the monastery there are two lilacs and peonies handed down from the Ming Dynasty. In the corridor are steles with inscriptions by ancient Chinese calligraphers of great popularity such as Wang Xizhi, Yan Zhenqing, Liu Gongquan, and Su Dongpo. The Twin Pagodas have become the symbol of Taiyuan, the capital of Shanxi.
