Yinchuan Drum Tower

Historic Site in Yinchuan

The town's good-looking Drum Tower – any historic Chinese city with any self-worth should have one – presides over the confluence of Jiefang Lu and Gulou Jie. It cannot be entered, so today only serves a decorative function. It is often confused with the Jade Emperor Pavilion, another attractive tower, a few hundred metres to the east.
