Shibao Zhai Pagoda

Projecting from a stone island in the Yangtze River is the arresting sight of Shibao Zhai.

This pagoda appears to be almost convex due to the shape of the rock on which it was constructed.

The lower levels of this ancient pagoda would have been destroyed by the flooding caused by the construction of the Three Gorges Dam. Communal action, in the form of building a coffer dam has preserved this important site.
