At the corner there are round supporting posts made from bricks which are as high as more than 10 meters. On each side there is an archway and a Buddhist niche. On the lintel are delicate peonies, Baoxiang Flowers, and the Two Dragons Pattern which are built with bricks. In the niche sits a figure of Buddha with flame patterns on the back and basso-relievo on both sides. The length of eaves of each floor is shorter than that of the lower floor, and at the top of the tower is the eight-square Xumi foundation. On the top of the foundation is the shining tip supported by the two layers of lotus petals. In the Fragrant Flowers Garden which consists of greenhouses and gardens in the Park, there are hundreds of kinds of and thousands of pots of rare flowers and grasses such as precious Iron Trees and peonies. It is fragrant all the year round in the Garden.
