The historic Bell Tower from early Ming dynasty. I love how the city built its roads and new buildings around the Bell Tower. A perfect example of preserving history while developing the city.
Xi'an City Center, see the clock tower water Malone
clock tower has been the center of Xi'an since ancient times, the night is like a golden peony flower, it is one of the most dignified, most magnificent, most imposing buildings in Xi'an .
clock tower, like a three-dimensional giant seal, steadily printed in ancient Chang'an. The urban construction of Xi'an is centered on the bell tower. The Xi'an city wall and the bell tower form a perfect central axis. Four straight streets of east, west, south and north are radiated to the Quartet, forming what the ancients called a hundred thousand like a chess game. The layout of the second street is like a vegetable dish.
I came to Xi'an and went to the legendary Bell and Drum Tower in the night. When the cool wind blew the red lantern under the foot of the flying dragonfly, when I climbed the stairs and climbed to a higher place, I dont know such a Changan city, the morning bell and the drum, wake up. How many years of memories? I don't know when the Ming Dynasty stood upstairs and watched the heartlights of a city that was gradually lit up. I only know that at this moment, when I stare into the distance, the night of this city belongs to me.
The bell tower witnessed the vicissitudes of Xi'an City for hundreds of years, and it is also the most striking spiritual aspect of Xi'an. Looking out from the sky at night, the four streets of the east, west, north and south meet here. The bell tower inspires fascination as it is such a brilliant structure that stands in the centre of the city. The citizens of Xi’an are proud of this heritage.
Xi'an Bell Tower is a relatively complete clock tower in China. It was built in the era of Zhu Yuanzhang in the Ming Dynasty and has a history of more than 600 years. As one of the landmarks of the ancient city, the clock tower is located at the center of Xi'an. It radiates into four streets in the east, south, west and north, and connects with the four gates of the east, south, west and north of the Xi'an city wall. The lower part of the bell tower is a square base. The top is covered with dark green glazed tiles, and the apex is wrapped in authentic gold. Against the backdrop of the night lights, the entire clock tower is stunningly beautiful.
