Popular attractions
Leifeng Pagoda
It is a five story tall tower with eight sides, located on the shores of the southeast side of the lake and originally built in the year 977. Leifeng Pagoda was one of the ten sights of the West Lake because of the Legend of the White Snake. At its most basic, the story tells of a young scholar who falls in love with a beautiful woman, unaware that she is a white snake who has taken on human form. A monk intervenes in order to save the scholar's soul and casts the white snake into a deep well at the Leifeng Pagoda.
 
Three Ponds Mirroring the Moon
The three stone pagodas, first built over 800 years ago, 2 meters in height, are the main scenic spot calling "Three Pools Mirroring the Moon". To the west of the isle stand three ball-shaped hollow stone pagodas with five round holes around. At the night of the Mid-Autumn festival, when the moon shines full and bright in the sky, a candle is lit inside each of the pagoda, the light and the moon cast their reflections through the holes on the water, hence the name.
