Nice tower overall despite the 32 rmb entrance fee! Very clean and beautifully alined gardens around the palaces and the temple. At the end, there's a 3D show around many ancient warriors such as Yue Fei, Xi Ji Guang or others who fought during the Three Kingdoms war! Man that was nice for military fanatics)

We did not go inside the temple but we walked around the gardens and then down the stairs on the outside wall of the tower. We still had a good view from the garden below which had a huge bell in the center. The entrance fee was 32RMB.

It's ok to visit if you have time to kill but it's not worth paying the entrance fee as there is nothing much about the building. There is a short 3D movie included and it's about the ancient warriors, one of it is Guan Yu. We were with a 7-day guided tour so this is just one of the spots... More

Not an overwhelming site, but a pleasant walk. Some good vistas and interesting photo ops. The tower has pictures of old Changsha leaving you to marvel at the many changes since. Other opportunities are in the area. Down the hill from the tower is the Changsha Fine Arts Academy. The day I visited the tower there was an "antiques" market... More

This is a cool old tower. Inside you will see lots of old pictures of Changsha and the tower. Not much is in English but it's cool to walk around and see the grounds. Someone is usually playing old instruments around there, it's a cool addition to the ambiance. There's a beautiful park around the outside that's fun for elementary... More

Probably not really worth the price of admission. But it's something to do if you are in Changsha and have time to kill. Was interesting seeing the old city walls. The 4D movie that plays every hour was lame.

This is a nicely kept historic site. There are plaques telling about the history, some are in English but most are not. If you can't read Chinese this is more of a place to enjoy all that you see rather than expecting to read about. You will see old pictures of Changsha, which I enjoyed. My husband and I enjoyed...

I decided to visit the Tianxin Tower as it was within walking distance from Changsha’s shopping district. The tower is located on top of a hill. The entrance fee is 32 RMB. I found the walk to the tower to be more interesting than the tower itself. As, the local buildings surrounding the tower are currently being restored to reflect... More

Located on top of a hill, one can get a reasonable view of Changsha city. There are many display on history of Changsha, Chairman Mao, and the several wars. A city of "three nations" vintage, it offers good historical value.

Lived in Changsha for 5 years, I thought this was one of the most beautiful historic ancient buildings in Changsha city. It's where Mao Zedong second wife Yang Kaihui was executed by the Chinese KMT nationalist in 1930.
