One of the must-sees on a tour of Xi'an and our excellent guide brought us here during a day-long City Tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and allowed us plenty of time for photos.

Make sure you visit the Big Wild Goose Pagoda. The temple with the carved walls and the temple with the mosaic of the life of Buddha are both outstanding.

The ancient city of Xian marked the gateway to the old Silk Road, along whose routes were brought and sent forth
many treasures.. Amoungst the greatest of these were in the form of new teachings that had come from far away India... The Teachings of the Buddha.... The Great Wild Goose Pagoda was to become a place of learning in this time of enlightenment in China... I was left to marvel at its beauty and majesty on an icy January day in 2012... After heavy snow the pagoda glistened like a jewel ... It's corridors of silence a flute for the winds....people flood to Xian to see the Terracotta Warriors and wonder at their marvel but in my experience the Wild Goose Pagoda surely is the jewel in Xians'crown!Ann Hamilton

We went to the "festival of light" (9 to 9.20 PM every night) , which is right down in front of the wild goose pagoda, and it was absolutely awesome! The interest of this pagoda is that it looks quite different from others, like it has a "sandy" look. It was the birthday of one of our friend, so we brought Champagne to drink in the small garden next to the pagoda...fantastic time!

The Big Wild Goose Pagoda is one of the more important architectural monument in the whole China et in the world. So, we wanted to see it. But we appreciated more the beautiful park near the Pagoda.
