History of White Pagoda Mountain Park
According to legend, in late Song Dynasty (970-1279) and early Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368), the White Pagoda Hill and its surroundings were occupied by Western Xia Regime (1038-1227). Genghis Khan (1162-1227), the founder of the Mongol Empire which was the former of the Yuan Dynasty, once wrote to Sakyapa in Tibet for a peaceful meeting to accomplish the unification of China; Later, the Sakyapa appointed an eminent Lama to pay a formal visit to Mongolia, who was unfortunately died of illness when he arrived in Lanzhou. To memorize the Lama, Yuan Dynasty had the White Pagoda and a temple built after the downfall of the Western Xia Regime and the inclusion of Lanzhou in its territory in 1226. It is to be regretted that the pagoda was destroyed in late Yuan Dynasty, and the existing White Pagoda was rebuilt during the rein of Emperor Jingtai (1450-1456) of Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). And in 1715 in Qing Dynasty, the temple was expanded and named as Ci’en Temple. In 1958, White Pagoda Park was opened to the public.

What to See & Do
One of highlights of this scenic area is the White Pagoda, it is surrounded by bleak waste grounds,the pagoda has a unique shape and exquisite structure, which is an excellent example of ancient pagodas.It was built in the Yuan Dynasty. The original pagoda was destroyed because of the battles in the connecting period between Yuan and Ming Dynasties. At the same time other temples and buildings were also built and here became the scenic spot in Lanzhou City. In 1655, Zhou Qi rebuilt the pagoda and renamed "Ci En Temple", he was the imperial inspector of Gansu province.
