Your tour guide, driver and car will wait for you at the airport and transfer to city area and start the sightseeing tour to Lingyin Temple and Six Harmonies Pagoda.
As one of the most important and wealthiest Buddhist temples in China, Lingyin Temple boasts plenty of pagodas and Buddhist grottoes. Located in front of the temple proper, Flying Peak is an outstanding Buddhist grotto site, in which are engraved numerous Buddha images. Six Harmonies Pagoda is one of the famous ancient pagodas in our country and forms the wonderful sceneries of Hangzhou together with ‘the ten sceneries of the West Lake’. The name "six harmonies" comes from the six Buddhist ordinances, meaning "harmonies of the heaven, earth, east, west, south and north".
Highly erected by the Qiantang River and to the south of the West Lake, it is a perfect symbol of brick-and-wood structure built in the ancient China.
