Kwan-yin Pavilion lies on the top of the southern part of Yuan Mountain which is located to the east of Erhai Lake.
The road leading to Kwan-yin Pavilion is very steep. Turn around the corner and you will see a straight wall as high as tens of zhangs standing in front of you. The whole wall was built with famous cubic Five-Dimension Stone of Haidong. The Kwan-yin Pavilion has two floors, and is a typical traditional pavilion building of Bai people. The statue of Kwan-yin sits straight on the lotus flower stand with her feet crossing before her. The Kwan-yin is elegant and kind. Many people come and worship here. Every Torch Day, ship owners come from neighbouring villages and gather here to worship Kwan-yin. The most excellent part of Kwan-yin Pavilion is the cloister on the second floor. You can stand here and look eastward at the fleet between Xiangyang Village and Ta Village. The numerous sails and backstays are just like giant pens with which the boatmen on the Erhai Lake can express their bold and generous feelings. Look westward, you will see white sails and groups of sea-gulls on the shining water. It looks as if the whole building was floating in the center of the sea like the onderland of Penglai.
