Shibaozhai is a red pagoda leaning on a hill along the bank of Yangtze River in Zhong county, Chongqing.
It consists of 9 floors and a temple at the top, which the latter was first built during the reign of Emperor Qianlong of the Qing dynasty. Back then, people used to go to the temple by just using a chain and thus Shibaozhai was constructed.
Shibaozhai is another architectural wonder of China that was built without using one single nails in the construction.
There isn’t an easy path to reach this pagoda as tourists would have to first walk over a long wooden strung bridge, which is very rickety and bounces a lot.
The next challenge is to climb up the pagoda using the wooden staircase that is quite steep and narrow, and you will see memorials or idols at the small side of the room at each floor.
There is nothing much to see at the temple but the view from the top will compensate that.
