The Three Pagodas, near the ancient city of Dali, are a collection of independent pagodas arranged on the corners of an equilateral triangle. They occupy a scenic location at the foot of the majestic Cangshan Mountains, facing Erhai Lake and are a symbol of the history of Dali and a testament to the development of Buddhism in the area.
In the time of the Dali Kingdom, Chongshengsi was the royal temple and one of the largest Buddhist monasteries in the area and the Three Pagodas were only a part of it. The monastery was destroyed by a fire during the Qing dynasty and today only the Three Pagodas remain.
Many sculptures of Buddha made of gold, silver, wood or crystal, Buddhist readings, and more than 600 various medicinal ingredients were found in Qianxun Pagoda, the oldest of the Three Pagodas.
