“The best pagoda to visit in Xi'an”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

The Small Wild Goose Pagoda is definitely a highlight of Xi'an. It costs 30 yuan to climb it and it is absolutely worth it. At the top of a dark and winding staircase is a trapdoor that you climb out of onto the top viewing platform of the pagoda. It is a really lovely view and a fun way to spend 320 minutes or so. The grounds of the temple are a little unloved, but it adds to the feeling of the place.

“Free to Visit Small Wild Goose Pagoda”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

Small Wild Goose Pagoda, sometimes called Little Wild Goose Pagoda, is one of two cultural pagodas in Xian. It stands in Jian Fu Temple, one kilometer south from the downtown area. The buildings nearby is full of quaintness. The Small Wild Goose Pagoda is free for the visitor. Because it is not far from Bell Tower and Drum Tower, so we can stop here for a rest after visiting the two towers.
