Dayan Tower Cultural and Leisure Scenic Resort, Xi'an
(4.3/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
Set in the midst of Xi’an city, Dayan Tower Cultural and Leisure Scenic Resort houses a World Heritage Site known as Big Wild Goose Pagoda. Originally built in 652 CE, the 60 m (197 ft) tall tower was designed as a home for sutras and Buddha statues brought from India. Part of the Da Ci’en Temple, the 10-story pagoda’s Guardian Hall features five gilded Buddhas in glass vitrines, while the temple itself features 13 separate courtyards with 1,879 different rooms. Enjoy the well-maintained and intricately designed gardens around the temple, and keep you eyes peeled for occasional dance shows in the park. A statue of the famous translator Xuanzang, who brought first sutras from India, stands in the courtyard. East of the temple lies a forest with nine pagodas containing relics of abbots. Using our international travel planner, Xi'an attractions like Dayan Tower Cultural and Leisure Scenic Resort can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Daijionji Temple (big wild goose pagoda) of the area is in the large park, locals dance is. To wander aimlessly is pretty good condition, but sufficient time is required. More carpeted tourist monorail, but said "never seen moving Guide".

  • 以大雁塔為中心加北廣場就是通稱主要的休閒景區的主題範圍,當然如果加上附近的餐廳和商店也不難想象這里的範圍足以花個2-3小時來此,當然如果你主要來大雁塔的話,可能你花的時間就比這個更少,因為本身大雁塔園區比這里還小,況且大雁塔的門票並不便宜,我覺得在廣場區這里一樣可以看到大雁塔,實不足以需要購買門票入場,因為登塔還得另外付費,值不值得很難說,但如果不是必要我個人覺得在廣場逛逛看看大雁塔主建築也不錯....  more »
