Nice place to take some good pictures as the temples and building around the pagoda are very nice. They are not old, but they are clean and well done. The Pagoda is the only old building that is original and as all pagodas are link to Budha. You have to pay extra to go up the Pagoda and we did... More

By night, this area has a whole different feel. There's a musical fountain playing, artistic lighting everywhere, crowds of people enjoying themselves, benches to sit, and the historic Tower shining over it all. Beautiful.

People performing dances in the square. Noise and activity everywhere. The city centre is full of sculptures, fountains and pagodas. A great way to spend a couple of hours and get some exercise in the evening.

The temple leading to it is fascinating as it is fake - not there ofiginally, and much of it concrete and plastic, and then you get to a tower that was a minor pagoda of a HUGE complex and has been there for 1200 years. That is impressive and fascinating. Special ticket extra fee to go up.

There is nothing more than just an old Pagoda with a musical fountain show at night, with a ticket of course. Other than that, there is really nothing much to look for when you are at this place.

This area is one of great contrasts and is worthwhile to appreciate not only the history of Buddhism in China but also the architecture of the wonderful building [old and new].

This is a must visit if you understand Chinese. The free tour guide explains very thoroughly the story of how the first monk went to India and brought back the teaching of Buddhism and how this tower was used for him to translate and store the sutras. The stories of his life are displayed in jade carvings, wood carvings in... More
