It is just a landmark of Xi'An. Nothing much to see and you have to pay for the not-so-cheap entrance ticket.

Lovely attraction to walk round, there was a drum group playing inside. At night it is beautifully light up. Situated right at the end of the crazy Muslim Quarter street and close the the Bell Tower.
