Yueyang Tower stands on the east bank of Dongting Lake at the west gate of the cultural ancient city of Yueyang, Hunan Province. With a history of more than 1,700 years, it is one of China’s most famous tourist destinations.
Due to the unique architectural style of Yueyang Tower, numerous literati wrote a large number of popular poems about it, propelling it to fame. Yueyang Tower faces the vast Dongting Lake in the west and the rushing Yangtze River in the north. The tower and the water contrast finely with each other. For the creation of its roof, a helmet-style structure was adopted, making it look like an ancient general and peerless in the history of ancient Chinese architecture.
