This is a large area located right next to the wild goose pagoda. the key highlight here is the light and water fountain show. While the show is available on the hour from day to night it is best to catch it in the evening.

Set against the backdrop of the wild goose pagoda, the show is pretty spectacular. The water fountains are spread across an area about 600 meters long and 50 meters wide. The fountains literally dance to the music, and the accompanying lights are a sight to watch. The show last for about 15 minutes.

Other than The light show the courtyard is also an area where older folks gather to dance and exercise. There are also bronze sculptures portraying life back then spread across the courtyard.

The entire place was crowded and full of life in the evening when we went. Easily accessible using the metro. Night is the best time to visit with all the colorful lights, fountain, entertainment etc

We were thankful that our hotel (the Yitel Dayanta; see my review) was as close as it was to this square so that we could check out the nightly performances and daily, morning exercises. There is always something interesting going on here, from umbrella dances, to fountain shows, from morning t'ai chi to group exercises, amateur opera performances and classical music mini-concerts. There are walkways winding all through the park with workers diligently tending to lovely gardens and waterfalls. There are even birds singing away here such that, in the midst of this city, I thought they were the sound of piped-in music, Come here and enjoy all that there is to offer. Wear your comfy clothes so you, too, can join in on a t'ai chi practice,

Dayan Pagoda North Square is just a fountain, not worth the time to wait. The true essence of beauty is in the South Square, which has the most spectacular scenery in the world, called the Datang Never Sleeping City. If you take subway line 4, go to Dayan Pagoda station, bypass Dayan Pagoda at North Square, and go to XuanZang Square on the south side. Here is the north entrance of the street. Enter this entrance and walk south, you will be surprised to find A magnificent scene of the Tang Dynasty. Next to it is the Tang Dynasty Hibiscus Garden, a park with Tang characteristics, which is very similar to Japan. This is because Japanese architecture was influenced by the Tang Dynasty.

A smaller pagoda square than the Big Wild Goose, not much to do/see here but a nice place to spend some time in the evening when the fountains are working.
