Small Goose Pagoda, Xi'an

(4.2/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
Although modest in size, Small Goose Pagoda stands proudly next to its taller neighbor, showing off its earthquake-induced scars. The tough brick pagoda has sustained a few cracks from the area's massive earthquakes. Nevertheless, you can still climb the sturdy structure--just be aware that the higher you go, the smaller the passage gets. From the top, feast your eyes on the gardens that surround it, and enjoy some peace and quiet. Take a walk in the park and ring the centuries-old bell, once used to call people to prayer. Using our world travel planner, Xi'an attractions like Small Goose Pagoda can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Liked it better than the Large Wild Goose Pagoda. It's free to enter the park, extra to enter the pagoda. Cool puppet show.
  • Less famous and much smaller crowd than its more famous big goose pagoda. However it's an equally interesting place to visit.
  • Don't understand why people rate this place so low. Love it. First time in my life to see how steles were ink rubbed was in this temple. Rather serene comparing to Dayan pagota. Really exciting when I was on the top of this pagota.

  • Great park! Also at this location is the Xian museum. The small goose pagoda and Xian museum are free with ID; however it is 30rmb to go to the top of the pagoda
