This five-story hexagonal stone "pagoda" was built in 1387, during the Ming Dynasty. The solid granite structure was designed to serve as a navigational marker for ships negotiating the treacherous waters near Kinmen. Though small, the pagoda exhibits an impressively simple and dignified style. Its peak features carvings and relief work, and stones near its base exhibit playful Chinese calligraphy written by the Ming Dynasty scholar Chen Hui as well as the contemporary artist Chang Ta-chien.
