Chenzhou Silver Tower

Hunan & Other regions 2017/05/22 View:2121

A glittering tower in Yongxing, Hunan province attracts hundreds of tourists every day since it opened to public as a silver museum last July. The tower was made of 2,500 kilograms of silver and it took 10 artisans more than 100 days to finish the design.

The silver tower is in the Silver Garden of China in Yongxing County. It has two floors with total area of 140 square meters. A gold adirondack love chair is placed on the second floor, which glitters in sunshine against all silver-wrapped carved windows. Except tiles on the roof, all the structure and decorations are made of silver recovered from waste water in factories.
