Just in the center of town this tower is seen from every spot . Closed to the public . Pagoda design with a few floors . Under it goes the most beautiful street of the old city .

Just another pagoda really. It marks the centre of the city and you can't miss it as you walk down Qing Ming street

This tower is in the centre of town and contributes to the old atmosphere in Pingyao. When I was there, it was closed for the public, but you can walk under it. It is on the mainstreet and you cannot miss it.

This is the center of town and a place to orient (no pun intended) yourself. Good picture and some shade.

If you visit the city, you will for sure make your way to this tower. You can't go up inside it, but you can see the incredible old architecture. For a refreshing break from the heat- stop in at iTea just south of the tower.

Right in the centre of walled city, where north, west, east and south streets meet, alas, you can no longer enter the tower and climb for views, but it's still worth seeing as you stroll through the hectic busy streets. A great piece of architecture...More
