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 Southwestern corner of the North Pagoda, with inscription on the west side.
