The Kulongtou (Kuningtou) Shuiwei Pagoda, located on the low-lying land on the right side of the Kuandi Temple and to the southeast of the wind lion god in Peishan, is a landmark at the entrance to the villages in Nanshan and Peishan. Built as a solid quadrilateral pagoda, the Shuiwei Pagoda is different from other oftenseen pagodas which are hexagonal or octagonal. It is shaped like a pyramid, and there are four characters, including "Fo (Buddha)," "Fa (Buddha harma)," "Seng (monk)," and "Bao (gem)," inscribed respectively on the four sides of the top level. On the very top is a gourd-shaped stone, and there are protruding eaves in between the levels. The pagoda is built in proportion with simple design features. The
Kulongtou Shuiwei Pagoda has played such roles as a navigational route marking, a water-level observation tower, a guardian of treasure and wealth, or a protector against evil spirits to meet the needs of the locals in different periods.
