Be careful climbing the tower
Nov 2019 • Couples
The West Pagoda complex is a short but pretty spot in the city. The sight is well managed and very well manteined.

The entry ticket and tower tickets are sold separately. I did climb the tower, which was enjoyable but is difficult for older and less limber individuals as the stairs are steep and narrow.

Visit to the temple
Jul 2019 • Family
A small beautiful garden secluded behind high walls in the heart of Yinchuan. A time for peace and quietness. The climb to the 11th floor of the tower is not worth it. The stairway is poorly maintained and the top floor full of graffitis. The view from the top is disappointing to say the least.
When you get off the premises you are a shot away from the antics market which is worth a look (although overpriced copies of just about anything do prevail in most shops)

Peaceful and calm attraction
Jun 2017 • Solo
I had the unique experience of being the only person in the top of the pagoda when I visited. I have never, ever been alone at a tourist attraction anywhere in China, and it was beautiful and calm. The gardens around the pagoda are pleasant enough, but the views from the top are definitely the highlight. I enjoyed my visit.

Quiet, pleasant and cheap. Not much to do. Go if you are nearby and have time but not worth a special effort
Oct 2016 • Solo
Practical note: although its in the centre of the block you need to enter by the gate on the east side

Pleasant place to get some quiet in the city and look at the old buildings and gardens. When I went there it was pretty much deserted, which makes a pleasant change from many similar sites I've been to in China.
On the negative side, there's no explanation of what anything is. And bits of it are suffering disrepair.
But overall a pleasant place to sit and think, or wander around. Entrance price is only 5 kauai.

Garden v. Pagoda
Aug 2016 • Solo
The gardens made it a very relaxing location. Peaceful, nice architecture, plenty of restrooms.

And then there was the pagoda itself. Have sturdy legs and no fear of heights. Being a narrow structure meant steep steps that required side-stepping. The view was nice and it's rewarding to claim you made it up. (I'm comparing to other pagodas with that comment.)

Very peaceful place, small garden around the pagoda with entry of ¥5 and extra ¥20 to climb the very steep steps up. Quite nice vieš of the city from the top :)

Skip if you are on a rush

This place is ok to see but nothing special. We stopped by and left after like 10min. Entrance fee is not high, so it is ok to fit in if you have some time to kill.

A peaceful place in downtown 承天塔寺
Jul 2014 • Couples
The over 1000 yrs tower is a nice visiting place. Entrance fee only RMB3. If have to go up on tower another RMB15. For me, just go to the park to enjoy the quiet moment is fine enough.

A good find
Jul 2013
18 rmb to get you into the nice park and to climb the tower. Less if you don't want to climb. It was not a difficult climb, very quiet, few people. Each story has iron bells that are always ringing I. The wind. Swallows surrounded d the tower and seem to make nests. Overall, a quiet, relaxing little side journey.
