Introduction

The Shengjinta Pagoda is located on the east side of Shengjinta Street in Xihu District, Nanchang City. Its original site was outside the ancient Jinxian Gate, and it was built during the Tang Tianyou period (904-907 AD). According to legend, before the tower was built, a monk dug up an iron box containing four gold ropes, three ancient swords (engraved with the words "Wind-Driving", "Fire-Taming", and "Jiao-Subduing"), and a gold bottle containing 300 relics. Therefore, it was named Shengjinta. Shengjinta is a brick and wood structure pagoda typical of southern China. It is about 50.86 meters high with seven visible levels and eight sides (with the eighth level being invisible). It has a red railing, green tiles, black-cornered walls, and a gourd-shaped golden top, all of which are rich in religious color. There are also ancient bronze bells hanging from the eaves, spaced at seven levels with seven sounds. The gourd-shaped copper top shines with golden light, while the entire tower features a simple and elegant style. Each level has four real doorways and four false ones, and their arrangement is varied and unique. Shengjinta has a simple and beautiful style, featuring the typical architectural art of southern China. It has a history of over 1,100 years since its construction in the Tang Dynasty, and is a crystallization of historical information and the wisdom of the working people. Therefore, it is known as "the guardian of the Jiangcheng with water and fire in harmony."
