The Kaiyuan Temple Pagoda is an octagonal pavilion building. The higher the pagoda ascends, the smaller its footprint, and the height of the layers shortens. Within the outer wall of the pagoda, there is a circular inner corridor at each floor, and it is as if the entire pagoda is one larger pagoda encircling a smaller one. Song Dynasty frescos, engravings, traditional wooden brackets, and painted ceilings are preserved within the pagoda. The two walls of the inner corridors have niches for statues, as well as more than 30 instances of poetry carved by noted figures from successive dynasties. There are multicolored clouds carved on the doors and windows on each floor, symbolizing the light shone by the Buddha's halo. Stood within, it is as if one has entered in amongst the sticks of incense encircling a Buddhist shrine. The exterior appearance of the Kaiyuan Temple Pagoda is magnificent. During the Song Dynasty Dingzhou was a strategic military town on the border with the Liao Dynasty, and one could climb the pagoda in order to observe the enemy's situation, therefore the pagoda is also called the "Anticipating the Enemy Pagoda".
