This is a classic tower that is well maintained. There is a very serene park at the base. I was fortunate enough to be there for the early plum blossoms this year.

Situated right in the middle of xian and walking distance from the Muslim quarter it's a great sight to visit. Good views of xian from the bell tower. In the evening when the tower gets lit it's a sight to behold.
