It's right on the center of Hu county.
It has 600 years history. In 1950s, it was the government office. In the past, the gates on the ground floor were open for transport.
Flea market is around the tower now.

My friend and I stumbled across the Bell Tower while we are walking around Xi'an City at night. Located near the Drum Tower, it looks magnificent with the bright lights emitting from it and certainly stand out from the other malls and buildings surrounding it. We didn't enter it though.

It is not worthwhile to pay for entrance fee, but u can take photo from the opposite road. The sightseeing at night will be more beautiful, as lighting will around the building! U can walk from the bell building from there, just 5-10 mins.

Drum Tower will stay in your memory but Bell Tower should be looked at from the outside. Not worth paying the entrance fee of any kind.What may be of some interest is Bell Tower Tea House where the commercialized Chinese style tea presentations are performed with immediate channeling into the gift shop naturally.

I was so impressed when I first saw it at night when I arrived in Xi'an that this was the first attraction to visit the next morning. A bit of a 'let down' though. Nice views from there but nothing much really. As most of the reviewers say, the Drum Tower is much more interesting.
