  • Don't think this was some special attraction. It is an old building well closest to the middle of a busy intersection. But I do not know the history of the built, so it may do something?

  • Dan of China where some of the history of the city without a major building-drum, Bell and drum tower has always been one of the traditional architecture of the Han nationality, the ancients "cast the city will build towers of the world, this is the legacy of Han." Yinchuan is no exception. Ning yuan, came to the crossroads of the liberation of West Street and drum tower North-South Street, yinchuan, stands in front of the drum tower. From the first year of Emperor Daoguang (1821) was established measured from base, yinchuan drum has 195 years old yet! Total is 36 meters high, 576 square meters. Composed by pedestal, pavilions, corner square. Station square, 24 meters long, 8.5 meters high, with brick and stone masonry. From the first year of Emperor Daoguang (1821) was established measured from base, yinchuan drum has 195 years old yet! Bases there are 5 m wide coupons top openings on all sides, through the cross. Four stone inscription cave places, Tung said "well" South "smoked", West says, "go towards the cool" North "Circumpolar". One certificate door openings on both sides of the land on the East side, South of coupons on the lintel, entitled "closed-Kun", one ear within North coupons on the lintel, entitled "dry land". Standing on the street or sidewalk can get to see the wall of drum, do not know can you ascending during the day (eight o'clock is over anyway), is said to have is night lights look good, well, around the half circle enjoy a bit. Said the old surrounded by a green belt, was too damp and had a bad influence on drum construction, so now the hardening treatment, into the driveway. This evening, take a drum tower shadow alone is not easy, around parked cars. Opposite is the drum tower Street, neon green in the evening, it is capital style.
