The White Pagoda (Bai Ta) and the Black Pagoda (Wu Ta) are another feature of Fuzhou's landscape.

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, seventiered and octagonal, and white in color, which accounts for its popular name.

The Black Pagoda, so named because it stands on the southern slope of the Black Hill (Wu Shan) or Black Rock Hill (Wu Shi Shan). It is 31 meters in height, also seven_tiered and octagonal, Its formal name was Chong Miao Bao Sheng Jian Lao Ta (Pagoda of Wisdom, Sacredness and Solidity). 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.
