It is said that Bell Tower (钟楼,Zhonglou) has been the centre of Xian City. Unique and beautiful. No one misses it while traveling to Xian. Its just besides the Muslim Food Street, which is by far the most crowded street of Xian. A Must see i would say.

The tower is impressive, particularly in the night when it is illuminated. It worths a visit and a walk on the large street that brings to it

Bell tower is adjacent to the drum tower. It is well lit at night and you should take selfie at the backdrop of this monument. This place is at a working distance from the xian south gate.

Great view at night with the lighting effects. A lot of people taking photos so you may need to wait for a bit before you can find the best angle to shoot but it's defintiely worthwhile.

You can access the bell tower from the pedestrian underground tunnel around the roundabout (south side, opposite from the subway exit) Entry is 35 yuan a person. You can climb up to the second level and watch the history of the bell tower.
