Located in Norfolk, Virginia, on the Freemason Harbor waterfront is this beautiful Pagoda surrounded by tranquil Oriental gardens. The two-story octagonal Pagoda sits on the old 500,000-gallon molasses storage tank's foundation and features colorful Chinese architectural details and ornamentation.
The Taiwan Friendship Pavillion, also known as the Marine Observation Tower, was a gift from the Taiwan government in 1989 to Virginia and the City of Norfolk for honoring trade ties. Constructed in Taiwan and then shipped to Norfolk, Taiwanese artisans assembled it.
