3 km N of town, Yinchuan, China

The Haibao Pagoda (Sea Treasure Pagoda), with a history of over 1,500 years, is situated in Yinchuan City, Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region. Since it is in the northern suburb of the City, it is also called "North Pagoda." The Pagoda is regarded as Yinchuan's symbol.
It is not known when it was originally founded; literary record has it that the pagoda was rebuilt in the fifth century. Over the centuries the Haibao Pagoda has endured several earthquakes. It has collapsed and been rebuilt time and time again. The existing pagoda was restored in the year 1788 during the Qing Dynasty (1644 - 1911). It is one of the eight highlights in Ningxia and is on the list of the sixteen famous pagodas in China.
