Fabulous historical site with great carvings and statues set in beautiful gardens. A rainy day but well worth a visit.

Fantastic square and lots of activity around it as well. Many sculptural artworks around even if the fountain is not on. There's groups of dancers, roller bladers and kite flyers around when we were there. The fountain is apparently not always on so investigate when it is turned on ahead of time so you don't miss out.

Its a bummer that everything old in China was either destroyed in wars, fires or earthquakes or by their cultural revolution. In any event, it just isn't that interesting.

the night view of the Dayan Pagoda is really good. But the music fountain in the Northern Square is not as good...Sooo crowded,many people were waiting to watch this and I dont think it's worth the time.

I enjoyed a show at 9 pm. Although it was busy, it was very enjoyable to be out here in the evening, soaking up the atmosphere.

Visited at night to watch the musical fountain displays. good views of the illuminated pagoda whilst watching the fountains. The nearby shopping plaza has a wonderful ceiling with moving pictures.

The light, water and music show was well worth the effort to get to the park to see. 1) For the best view, make your way about 2000 hrs to the Southern end of the northern square, you know you are at the right spot when you have the Pagoda behind you and you are about 3m higher than the... More
