Quiet, pleasant and cheap. Not much to do. Go if you are nearby and have time but not worth a special effort

Practical note: although its in the centre of the block you need to enter by the gate on the east side Pleasant place to get some quiet in the city and look at the old buildings and gardens. When I went there it was pretty much deserted, which makes a pleasant change from many similar sites I've been to in... More

The gardens made it a very relaxing location. Peaceful, nice architecture, plenty of restrooms. And then there was the pagoda itself. Have sturdy legs and no fear of heights. Being a narrow structure meant steep steps that required side-stepping. The view was nice and it's rewarding to claim you made it up. (I'm comparing to other pagodas with that comment.)

This place is ok to see but nothing special. We stopped by and left after like 10min. Entrance fee is not high, so it is ok to fit in if you have some time to kill.

The over 1000 yrs tower is a nice visiting place. Entrance fee only RMB3. If have to go up on tower another RMB15. For me, just go to the park to enjoy the quiet moment is fine enough.

18 rmb to get you into the nice park and to climb the tower. Less if you don't want to climb. It was not a difficult climb, very quiet, few people. Each story has iron bells that are always ringing I. The wind. Swallows surrounded d the tower and seem to make nests. Overall, a quiet, relaxing little side journey.... More

The tower is very famous. You can climb the tower and birdview the Yinchuan city.
