Giant Wild Goose Pagoda or Big Wild Goose Pagoda (Chinese: 大雁塔; pinyin: Dàyàn tǎ, literally "big swan goose pagoda"), is a Buddhist pagoda located in southern Xi'an, Shaanxi, China. It was built in 652 during the Tang dynasty and originally had five stories. The structure was rebuilt in 704 during the reign of Empress Wu Zetian and its exterior brick facade was renovated during the Ming dynasty.
There's a water fountain show that last about 22 minutes at Friday night. You can enjoy great there too! Also, this place serves a very nice place for photographers to take a stunning landscape pictures in front of Giant Wild Goose Pagoda with it's water fountains in front.
It's the main attraction of the area and well-worth your time. It's old, dating to the Tang Dynasty, and full of history. You can also climb up it for a small fee, and it gives neat views of the city. But more than that, you're climbing a tower more than a thousand years old, with cool little exhibits on the way up. My favorite was a small seismometer they keep on the 5th floor to measure earthquake impacts. Make sure to come back at night too-they do a fantastic water show most nights around 9:00pm. Absolutely beautiful.
Very nice park to visit there. Authentic and beautiful.
Nice peaceful place to learn about Huang tsang
Recommended. The top of the tower was a great view of the whole city. It was one of the tallest, if not the tallest, building in the area.
if you are around here when fountains show begin.. you should really stop by and watch this nice event of music and water! metro and bus stops are nearby
A very beautiful place indeed;nice park and water fountain show.Just amazing!!!must visit if you come to Xian.Ticket is rmb50 to get in.Really worth it
Not too bad and I like the view look down from tower.
You can get some lovely views after you climb the seven stories to the top of the big wild goose pagoda. There are actually good views from each story so if it gets too much to do all seven floors the views are still worth it so I would recommend visiting the giant wild goose pagoda.
The Pagoda is a landmark in this area, surrounded by parklands and fronted by a huge fountain that stretches south into the plaza. Evening fountain and light shows are a regular feature. Come early (7pm) to get good spots to view the spectacle!
It was such a great experience when I traveled there! Learned some information about the Journey to the West. The pagoda can be accessed from the Da Yan Ta station of line 3 of the Xi'an Metro. Make sure you get there earlier because the pagoda tower is usually closed at 5 or 6 pm. Otherwise you can only spend time in the temple complex.
A lovely park area. There is an outside section with views of the Wild Goose which is free to enter. This area is mainly gardens and hawkers. It does lead into a park area as well. Inside the Wild Goose are smaller temples and gardens which are nice. To enter the Wild Goose costs extra but it does provide lovely views on a clear day. It can get busy and it is a working temple so be respectful. Its very close to the History Musuem - about a 7 min walk. So if the queues are too long at the musuem its worth walking to and seeing then returning to the musuem to see if the queue is better.
Historically more interesting. Nothing really inside, your pretty much paying 30RMB to hike up 7 flights of stairs for decent views of the city.
