Dragon Pavilion   

Located in the northwestern part of Kaifeng city on the ruins of the imperial palace of the Northern Song Dynasty (960-1127), the 13.7–meter-high Dragon Pavilion was a big hall belonging to the Longevity Palace of the Qing Dynasty. In the ancient times, local officials used to come here and hold ceremonies to pay tribute to the emperor.

The Dragon Pavilion was built on a 13-meter-high brick base with a flight of 72 steps, which are made of broad slabs leading up to the pavilion. The middle part of the flight is carved from top to bottom with a huge pattern of nine dragons in token of prosperity. In front of the Dragon Pavilion stands a bronze statue of Dr. Sun Yat-sen erected in 1929.
