 The Tower of Buddhist Incense is the symbolic structure in the Summer Palace. It was built during the reign of Emperor Qianlong. The tower is 41 meters high. It faces Kunming Lake southward,thus tourists can have a bird’s eye view of the lake.
A nine-level pagoda was originally planned for the tower’s location but Emperor QianLong (1711-1799) ordered it to be dismantled during the construction of the eighth level.
