Description
Huanghe Tower was originally built in the Three Kingdoms period ( 220-280) and is Known as a " consummate scene under heaven". In history the imposing tower was a gathering place for men of letters. Destroyed many times in successive dynasties, it was rebuilt time and again until 100 years ago when it was for the last time reduced to ashes. Today's Huanghe Tower, 51.4 meters high, is the result of four years of construction beginning in 1981. It is 90 meters from the water surface of the Yangtze River. It is five-storied with yellow tiles and red pillars, overlapping ridges and interlocking eaves. The five stories have a total of 60 upturned- eaves, and each story has five ridges by side. Standing lofty on the hill and overlooking the Yangtze River, the Tower looks resplendent and magnificent. From the top of the tower one can enjoy a spectacular view.
