Nice grounds. You can go up the tower when they are not cleaning it and it's covered in scaffold but it will cost extra. Not much to do, they have some carnival games where you can shoot a bow and arrow, or hand held cross...More

It's a little gem hidden among Henan Univeristy Old Campus, which has more old, amazing architecture for you to see! There's an entrance fee (around 30 CNY for adults and about half that price for students with ID). Some of the park is being closed...More

The Tower itself is quite spectacular and the grounds are okay. There is some good shopping at reasonable prices. Its an average site but still worth visiting. It is the only iron Pagoda in China.

This is one of the original oldest standing sites of the city, which is not modified or rebuilt. It's about 1,000 years old. I've climbed to the top. It's a feat but worth it.
