OK I would not go out of my way to see it, but if you travelling from the Hanging Temple ( a must !! ) to the Yungang Grottoes ( another must !! ), then it's not much out of the way to see the wooden Pagoda. No access allowed when I was there, and kinda stark, but fascinating how they might have built it. And of course, there are lots of other wooden pagodas in China, but perhaps not quite as high.

you don't need to enter , it can be seen front outside , pigeons are everywhere inside. It seems that the local working staffs don't really look after the structure like other places .But the area around it is pretty , old city like before

Looking up at the underside of the roof you can appreciate the careful construction. Amazing that it was made without using nails.

The wooden pagoda itself is nice to see and take photos of - you cant climb it though. Its in a nice area with some paved streets you can wander about and get some lunch etc.
