It’s not just the Pagoda you see when you go through the entrance but there’s several ceremonial buildings inside the complex. They’re basically the Chinese imperial style but housing some wonderful and beautiful Buddha statues. For me, exceptional would be an understatement. The Pagoda itself...More

Average place to visit. Nothing special to see. This is simple pagoda. Can be avoided if you have no time.

Worth a visit. Some good photo opportunities of the architecture but refrain from taking photos of the many Buddha’s.

Quite a bit to see here and definitely one of the more interesting places to visit when in Xian. But you really need a guide to explain things.

After viewing the Warriors, nothing is quite as good. The pagoda is a 1000 years old but most of the buildings around it are perhaps 30-40 years old at the most. It is interesting if you enjoy pagodas and their history.

We were on a guided tour so unable to say how much the tickets are. Sometimes one can get combination tickets which are more economical
