Yu Hill

Yu Hill Opposite Wushan Hill, Yu Hill stands in the center of the city at an elevation of 58.6 meters, covering an area of 11.9 hectares; it resembles a huge legendary turtle. It is also called Nine-Immortal Hill. According to the legend, a nomadic tribe name "Yu Yue" inhabited here in the Warring States. Hence, people named it "Yu Hill".

The hill has been a tour resort since ancient time and numerous historic sites can be found here including White Pagoda in Ding Guang Tower Temple (White Pagoda Temple), one of "The Opposing pagodas" -- White pagoda (Bai Ta) and Black pagoda (Wu Ta). The White pagoda stands on the western slope of the Yu Hill. Its original name was Ding Guang Ta (Pagoda of Eternal Brightness). It is 41 meters high, seven tiered and octagonal, and white in color, which accounts for its popular name. White Tower and Black Tower are the symbol of Fuzhou City. Not only are there ancient sights, there are also new places to be explored, Jinniu Shan Park, Minjiang Park, Mt. Qingyun and Shiba Chong Xi (brooks).

From either of the twin pagodas one can have a bird's eye view of Fuzhou city. The pagodas are a spectacular sight when they are illuminated all over with lamps on festivals.
