Stone pagoda built in the first year of the Taiji Reign (712) preserved at Yunju Temple (雲居寺 太極元年唐塔) Baycroft, Anne
Yunju Temple（雲居寺）is located at the foot of the Baidai（白帶）Mountain. It was built in late Sui Dynasty (隋, 581-619). Stone and brick pagodas and pillars from Yunju Temple and temples nearby were now preserved at the site, together with 14,278 pieces of stone scriptures. The 34.2-meter-high North Pagoda（北塔）was made of bricks and tiles, resembling a bell tower. The base was built in Sui Dynasty (隋, 581-619) or Tang Dynasty (唐, 618-907), while the body was built in Liao (遼, 916-1125). This stone pagoda dated to the Tang Dynasty sits at the Southeastern corner of the North Pagoda, with inscription on the east side.
