Xi'an

Bell Tower

The original Bell Tower was built in 1384 (17th year of the Hongwu Period of the Ming Dynasty) and was relocated to the present site in 1582 (10th year of the Wanli Period of the Ming Dynasty). A huge bell in the tower gave an alarm in time of danger and announced the time. With a brick-and-wood structure, the Bell Tower consists of three parts: the base, body and top, totaling 36 meters high.
Drum Tower
First constructed in 1380 (13th year of the Hongwu Period of the Ming Dynasty), the Drum Tower was renovated in 1699 (38th year of Kangxi Period of the Qing Dynasty) and 1740 (5th year of the Qianlong Period of the Qing Dynasty). In old times, a huge drum was hung in the tower to announce the nightfall everyday. The Bell Tower stands not far to its east.

The panorama taken was at the Bell Tower.
