About Drum Tower

Drum Tower is a rare building with a large scale. It is divided into two layers. The lower layer is arched and has no beam-shaped city. The upper layer is the top of the four slopes. The dragon and the phoenix dance and the carved beams are very spectacular. Upstairs was originally the place where the Ming Dynasty greeted the king and received the time. The original drums and ceremonial drums on both sides, the drums and twenty-four faces and other musical instruments were lost after the death. The current building is originally built in the Ming Dynasty, and the upstairs building was rebuilt in the late Qing Dynasty. In 1685, a huge monument was built upstairs, and the Drum Tower was changed to the monument. However, the locals still call it the Drum Tower.

    Located in the Gulou District of Nanjing City, the Drum Tower in Zhongshan Yumai is the time reporting center of the old Nanjing City. It is also used for urging the civil and military officials to perform official duties. It is the symbol of the Beijing Teacher of the Ming Dynasty, as opposed to the Bell Tower in Nanjing. Founded in 1382, it is a cultural relic protection unit in Jiangsu Province. It's of great historical significance and momentum. It's worth visiting.

    This is a free museum open to the outside world. There are many very precious cultural relics in it. It's still very well preserved. Running to the top of the Old Drum Tower can also climb the telescope, which is a very good scenic spot. I recommend you to go there.

    This Drum Tower Park is really very good. There is an ancient building in it. It's very well preserved. Upstairs, you can see a big drum. The park is open to the public free of charge. It's nice to be able to go up and look up.

    I personally think Nanjing Drum Tower is the most cost-effective attraction, free! The scenery is very good, the high red wall is very characteristic and has a sense of history! ___________ You can climb up the city wall and see the imperial monument of Kangxi. It's spectacular!

    As one of the most prosperous districts in Nanjing, Drum Tower and Xinjiekou have a considerable position. The place with inches of land and inches of gold can retain this green, but can walk and rest. It is not easy to be located in a prosperous district, but enjoy a quiet and leisurely life. Take Metro Line 1 or Line 4 and get out of Gate 5 or 6 at Drum Tower Station. Over 600 years of vicissitudes of life have witnessed the ups and downs of the world. I like the indifference after the prosperity

    Located in the Gulou District of Nanjing City, the Drum Tower in Zhongshan Yumai is the time reporting center of the old Nanjing City. It is also used to urge all civil and military officials to be diligent in government affairs and remind the people to work hard. The important celebrations such as welcoming the king, accepting the imperial edicts and selecting concubines are the symbols of the capital master of the Ming Dynasty, as opposed to the bell tower in Nanjing.

    One of the important central areas of Nanjing, Nanjing people are commonly known as the big turntable of Drum Tower. Twenty years ago, there were telecommunication buildings, art buildings and other high-rise buildings. Ten years ago, Zifeng, a landmark building with a height of more than 400 meters, rose up. The facilities of the nearby Drum Tower Park can not be compared with the modern amusement park, but it has more years of precipitation and cultural atmosphere. The blue sky and white clouds in summer are extraordinary. 。

    It seems that all cities have Drum Tower. In Nanjing, Drum Tower is not only a place name but also a downtown Drum Tower Park. Drum Tower, subway and bus have Drum Tower Station. It's on Zhongshan Road with busy traffic.

    Today, looking down from the top of Zifeng Building, I suddenly found that the Drum Tower is very beautiful. Should be the reason for the renovation, the color is particularly bright. Although it is winter, it is still autumn. The golden leaves are scattered in the courtyard. They are beautiful.
