Show sight on map

Chaoyang North Tower is located in Shuangta District, Chaoyang City, Liaoning Province, People's Republic of China. It was named because it had three towers in its early years, and the tower is the northernmost one. The tower lacks clear records in historical materials. During the large-scale maintenance from 1984 to 1992, the archaeological team found the rammed earth towers of the sixteen Kingdoms period, the Northern Wei Dynasty, Sui Dynasty, Tang Dynasty and Liao Dynasty under the North Tower. Finally, combined with historical materials and other archaeology, they found that the existing tower was built in the Tang Dynasty and rebuilt in the Liao Dynasty. Because its base spans five eras, the tower is also known as the "fifth pagoda" or "the fifth pagoda". The tower is a 13-story brick tower with dense eaves, 42.6 meters high, formed from the bottom to the platform, Xumi seat, tower body, dense eaves and tower brake part. The tower body has the tower door to the south, through which you can enter the tower ventricle. The highest point of the tower atrium can reach 27 meters, with an underground palace directly below, and a heavenly palace directly above. Inside, two Sakyamuni relics were unearthed in 1988. In 1988, Chaoyang North Tower was listed as a national key cultural relic protection unit.
