White Pagoda Temple

Buddhist Site in Lanzhou

This temple, built during the Yuan dynasty (1206–1368) for a fallen Tibetan monk, stands on a hilltop in White Pagoda Park (白塔山公园; Báitǎ Shān Gōngyuán) on the northern bank of the Yellow River and provides excellent city and river views on a clear day.

Enter from a gate on the north side of Zhōngshān Bridge and walk up the stairs or catch the cable car on the south side a few blocks to the east.
