Giant Wild Goose Pagoda (Big Wild Goose Pagoda)

Recommendation by Lemi

Located within the Daci’en Temple, the Giant Wild Goose Pagoda once held sacred sutras (manuscripts), statuettes of Buddha, and other relics. The priceless collection is all thanks to Xuanzang, a Buddhist monk who made a 17-year pilgrimage to India. His insights on the faith and the cultures along the Silk Road are still studied to this day. Xuanzang’s statue welcomes guests approaching the Pagoda. Ascend the seven-tiered tower for a bird’s eye view of the Xi’an skyline where ancient architecture and modern high-rises meet. There’s an extra fee to enter the temple complex, then another to enter the Pagoda.
