“Good but not spectacular”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Was interesting but not as spectacular as the other sites in Xian. The large Goose Pagoda in more imposing and in a very nice area of the city.

“As interesting as the big pagoda”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

You can walk freely in the park around the pagoda. Howeverif you want to climb it, you have to pay (I forget the price). The park is nice and there are a few shops if you want to buy souvenirs. You can also ring a big bell for a few yuan.
The pagoda is smaller than the big one (obvious !) and it may be mpore difficult to climb if you have some troubles (stairs are steep and small. As for the big pagoda, the view on the top is not that impressive because Xi'an horizon is full of ugly buidlings. The top floor has also fences to prevent stuff to fall and it blocks the view.

“worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

i did not have enough time to visit the museum but went by trike taxi to the Pagoda. The golden buddah is the highlight and quite spectacular and the grounds are well laid out. The pagoda itself leans precariously . Watch for the fountain display usually every hour on the hour

“A little off the beaten track but well worth escaping to”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

Not far from the City Centre, this lovely park and the new modern and cavernous aircon Xi'an museum is well worth a few hours of your time. The little goose pagoda is what it is, but it's set in some nice grounds, and has a lake with resident geese. It's a shame the city authorities allow the building of excessively large buildings so close to the park.

Make sure you find your way round the park to the Xi'an museum. They don't have the Terracotta warriors here (go to the Shaanxi History museum for that) but they do have all manor of other artifacts that are nicely displayed.

“Small ggoose pagoda”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

South of the city, outside the walls. Not expensive to enter the grounds and museum, peaceful, pleasant and the museum full of interesting artefacts. Although the climb to the top of the pagoda is not for the feint hearted and when you get to the top there is not a great deal of room - well worth a visit.
