Notes: Sun Moon Lake is a tourist attraction located in Nantou County in central Taiwan.  I know what you are thinking - "I don't see a lake!"  Yeah I don't either, but this tower, the Cih-en Pagoda, is on Sha Ba Lan Mountain in the area surrounding the lake.  It was built in 1971 by  President Chiang Kai-shek in memory of his mother.  Construction was difficult because the building materials had to be shipped over the lake and then brought up the mountain.
