Chenggu Bell Tower is located in the southeast of Chenggu County, an antique and exquisite tower building. Although this bell tower is incomparable with the bell tower in Xi'an, it is one of the landmark buildings in the city and has profound historical significance. So when visiting relatives, I deliberately took a look. Although the bottom of the building was protected, I found out through inquiring information. According to "Chenggu County Chronicles", the bell tower was built during the Jiaqing period of the Qing Dynasty, then burned down and rebuilt during the Guangxu period. It has been repaired many times before and after 1949. The most recent one was restoration and reconstruction in 2006, and it was a provincial cultural relics protection unit. The bell tower has a four-story brick and wood structure, about 15 meters high, a three-story pavilion with three-story cornices, and the four-story top floor is full roof and full cornice. The four corners are high up and take off the eaves. The roof of the building is compactly contracted, but it is tilted up and hexagonal, which is particularly elegant. The cornices are arc-shaped, which stretches outwards as much as possible; on its spine sits a smart bird and beast, and its lower abdomen is stacked with rivets and patterns, and a wind chime is hung from the front. The bottom of the bell tower is a brick square high platform with a side length of about ten meters, and the lower part is hollow, which is a common arch structure on all sides. The second, third, and fourth floors are dominated by wooden structures, with wooden pillars as bones and wooden lattice windows as walls to create a square pavilion, and its area is reduced layer by layer. There is a two-foot-wide pedestrian walkway around the pavilion and a three-foot-high wooden fence at the edge. These wooden cornices, columns, panes, and fences are all painted dark red. If in the spring sunset, the whole bell tower is bathed in the soft sunset, the pure red and the indigo of the glazed tiles, gleaming, it is really beautiful; if there happens to be a wisp of breeze, swing the wind chime under the eaves There will be loud sounds, and the scene will be intoxicating. The four arches of the bell tower are facing the streets in four directions. To the south is South Street, and there is a corner called Shilangmiao at 100 meters; Xiangxi Street is known as the nickname of Wuzu Temple Street; eastward is Dadongguan; the northward street is called Lao street.
Chenggu Bell and Drum Tower is located in the center of the old county. It is connected to Zhongshan Street in Zhonglou Street in the north to the County Party Committee and County Government, Nantong South Street to Yang'an Railway, east to Dadongguan, Xihui Wuzumiao Street to Century Plaza, it is very majestic.
