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.

Our hotel is very close to this spot and we enjoyed several walks around. Day and night time is good.

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

There is a lot to see and do here, and best of all, all the local and chain stores all have traditional architecture, so its fun to see Starbucks, and Burger King like this.

We visited the park near the pagoda width was great for night photos and found a whole special nightlife going on at the park. So many people dancing in different groups and different dance styles. You could just jump in and join without feeling weird. The mall near by had the most amazing LED ceiling with ever changing spectacular scenes.... More
