Despite being demolished and rebuilt more than once, this drum tower is thought to have been founded during the Tang Dynasty, around 821. The current structure is somewhat odd with its 1434 base and 1930s clock tower. Nevertheless, it is free and therefore worth the handful of steps that affords you with somewhat of a view. What is perhaps nicer than the view is the stone archway the tower is built upon that leads to on the other side.
