It is a seven-storey tower with another seven stories underground. It is renowned for its long history, architectural value and ancient artifacts.
Tianfeng Tower was first built in 695 during the Tang Dynasty, so it is also called as the Tang Pagoda. Since it built, this pagoda had been destroyed and reconstructed on many occasions from the Southern Song Dynasty (1127-1279) to the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). The current tower was built in 1989. Guarded by a male and a female stone lion on the two sides, it is surrounded by a red wall, ready to tell people its long history.
