You can take this in before entering the Wild Goose pagoda. There is a small park next to the square and it reallly is not much to behold in the day. However, It might be better at night as this pictuce shows.

We spent a couple of hours at this site. It's a large complex and there are plazas and squares surrounding the site. You cannot enter the pagoda but you can get quite close to take pic's.

We waited for more than one hour for this music fountain, it just so so. it not worth it. But Dayan Tower you should go.

The pagoda and surrounding gardens are interesting enough but check the timing of the evening show and you will be delighted by the combination of fountains, music and light......and the impromptu performances by locals. Worth doing while in Xi’an.

We were lucky to be there just after New Year and the festival. The town was lit up with all sorts of lights and beautiful to see at night.

Definitely one of the things to do in Xian! Recommend doing it with a tour guide. Highly recommend Bryan Bai. His website is xianhistorytourguide.com

Who can't feel happy watching the huge expanse of fountains 'dance' to the music. A beautiful site at night with the lights too. We stood halfway along one side and had a good view. Interesting views from the 'top' or the 'bottom' where you can...More

Really cool lights at night! The musical fountain show is so-so. This is a worthwhile site to see, but you do not need to spend much time here.

Feind wanted to visit the tower, which actually leans a bit to the left, due to an earlier earth quake...been there for 700+ years. Plenty of Buddha's enshrined. Quite peaceful.
