What people are saying:

The Lingguang Tower is located on the top of Tashan Mountain in the northwestern suburb of Changbai Town, Changbai Korean Autonomous County, Jilin Province. It is 820 meters above sea level and has a history of more than 1,000 years. The Lingguang Pagoda is the only pagoda style of the Tang dynasty in Jilin Province, which is the only ancient building relic of the local government of the Bohai Kingdom in the Tang Dynasty. It is a key cultural relics protection unit. The original name of the Emmanuel Pagoda has long been lost. According to legend, a long time ago, when the earth's crust changed, everything was overthrown, and only this tower stood tall, plus its peculiar shape, bright, refreshing, and eyebrows. Therefore, in 1908, Zhang Fengtai, the first prefect of Changbai Prefecture in the Qing Dynasty, referred to it as the Lingguang Temple in Shandong in the Western Han Dynasty and named it the Lingguang Tower. The Emmanuel Pagoda is made of blue-gray square bricks and is a pavilion-like hollow square tower. It is composed of five parts: channel, tunnel, underground palace, tower body and tower. Although after thousands of years of erosion by wind, frost, rain and snow, the bricks have peeled off sporadically and the tower is slightly inclined, it is still rock solid and towering. Even the flaking fragments are very hard, and when relatively knocked, the sound is clear and sweet, and the remaining sound is constant. The passage is stepped, with 11 steps in total.
