This structure is in the centre of Xi'an and there is a similar tower nearby. Both are huge built as part of the defensive structures for the city. Not far from the cirty walls so can be seen in the same visit.

Walk in the day to admire the numerous drums as it is just infront of moslem quarters. Do walk at night to see the beautiful building being light up. Take day and night photo for memories.

A must see at night. The lights are beautiful can be seen from just about anywhere. The strange thing is it's actually a traffic around about.

A historic tower to alert soldiers and citizens in the old days. Small cost to enter and can be combined with the drum tower. Good view from the tower. It is very pretty at night as it is lit up.

Just a viewing of this structure at night in the middle of a busy traffic junction is worth the visit. A must see in a trip to Xi'an.
