( Tiger Hill Pagoda )

The Tiger Hill Pagoda or Huqiu Pagoda (Chinese: 虎丘塔; pinyin: Hǔqiū tǎ; Suzhou Wu: Hou chieu thaeh, Wu Chinese pronunciation: [hou tɕʰʏ tʰɑʔ]), officially the Yunyan Pagoda (Chinese: 云岩寺塔; pinyin: Yúnyán sì tǎ; Suzhou Wu: Yuin nge zy thaeh, Wu Chinese pronunciation: [ɦʏn ŋe̞ zz̩ tʰɑʔ]), is a Chinese pagoda situated on Tiger Hill (Huqiu) in Suzhou city, Jiangsu Province of Eastern China. It is nicknamed the 'Leaning Tower of China'.

The primary pagoda of the former Yunyan Temple, which was founded in 327 and rebuilt for the last time in 1871. The temple suffered damage in successive wars and most of the temple was destroyed during the Second Sino-Japanese War. Some elements of the temple such as the formal entrance, the Yunyan Pagoda, and several other buildings and smaller shrines have survived, and now stand as landmarks throughout Tiger Hill Park.

Construction of the pagoda began in 907 CE, during the later period of the Five Dynasties period, at a time when Suzhou was ruled by the Wuyue Kingdom. Construction was completed in 961 CE during the Song Dynasty.[1]

The uppermost stories of the pagoda were built as an addition during the reign of the Chongzhen Emperor (1628–1644), the last emperor of the Ming Dynasty.[2]
