    These are just some of the highlights of what is to be found there. The most well-known site on Tiger Hill is the Yunyan Pagoda. The brick-structured tower is 47.5 metres in height and more than 6000 tons in weight. Since the Ming Dynasty, Yunyan Pagoda has been suffering from issues with its foundation and hence has been leaning toward the north-east. Now it is leaning 2.48 degrees. The pagoda is also called the "Leaning Tower of the East ".

    The most attractive and mysterious site on Tiger Hill is the Sword Pond. There are many valuable swords underwater at the bottom of the pond. King Helu and his many treasures were rumored to be buried under the Sword Pond. The Sword Pond is about 45 metres’ wide and about 6 metres’ deep. The pond never dries up and is actually a spring that flows with clear and drinkable water all year long.

    Every year from March, there is a spring flower fair at Tiger Hill. There is also usually an autumn temple fair before or after Chinese Mid-autumn Festival. In winter, a Chinese Spring Festival fair is held every year.

    景点介绍
    虎丘,也被称为海涌峰,占地约14100平方米(三亩),高为36米(118英尺)。以其优美的自然风景和历史遗迹闻名于世。此山看起来像一只缱绻的老虎,因此得名虎丘。有一个传说,一个白色的老虎陪着吴王阖闾下葬并守护着他。
     
    爬虎丘山时,你会发现许多历史遗迹,其中一些可以追溯到2500年前。虽然虎丘山看似小,但它却有着悠久的历史。这些遗迹只能算作沧海遗珠。
     
    最著名的景点应属云岩寺塔,又称虎丘塔。现存塔身高47.5米,全为砖砌,重6000多吨。由于地基原因,自明朝起,虎丘塔就向东北倾斜,斜度为2.48米,被称为“东方比萨斜塔”。
     
    虎丘最神秘,最吸引人的古迹是剑池。剑池水中有着春秋末期吴王阖闾的许多宝剑,剑池下面埋葬着吴王阖闾的尸体和珍宝。剑池广约45米,深约6米,终年不干,清澈见底,可以汲饮。与虎丘齐名的“狮子山”,其外形像是一头坐着的狮子。

    每年3月份开始,虎丘会举办春季花会,还会在中秋节前后举办中秋庙会,冬季举办春节年会。
