    Description
    The Brick Pagoda, also known as Jiachen Xiang Brick Pagoda, is located in the Jiachen Xiang on Ganjiang Lu. It was listed as a Suzhou Protected Cultural Relic in 1982. The octagon Brick Pagoda has five stories, 6.82-meter high. Every side of the octagon at the base of the pagoda is 0.51-meter long. And the diameter is 1.2 meters. Many residential houses were built around the Pagoda at the beginning of the Republic of China era, but the Pagoda was seriously damaged in 1966 during the Culture Revolution. It was rebuilt in 1993. The base was reinforced and most of the structure of the Pagoda was restored to its original shape. Additionally, a small courtyard was built around the Brick Pagoda at this time. The Pagoda is the only remaining pagoda of the original seven pagodas built inside ancient Suzhou city. It is high in relic study value.

    景点介绍
    砖塔位于相门内干将路甲辰巷市桥头,又称甲辰巷砖塔,1982年被列为苏州市文物保护单位。该塔为五级八面楼阁式砖结构仿木塔,高6.82米,基座每边底宽0.51米,对径1.2米。该塔民国初年即被围入民宅,围着塔身搭建了房屋,仅上半截露出屋面。由于长年失修,加上1966年的人为破坏,原仅存四层,腰檐亦已残缺不全。1991年列入文物维修项目,经一年半动迁、测绘、设计等准备,于19935月动工维修,加固了底层,修复了各层塔檐、翼角、平座,补齐了斗拱等构件,重建了第五层和塔顶,制作安装了塔刹,并在拆除民房的地基上开辟了塔院。甲辰巷塔小巧精致,构造规范简洁,是苏州“城中七塔”仅存的一座,具有较高的文物研究价值。
