Xīlái Wooden Pagoda

Pagoda in Zhāngyè

Zhāngyè's main square is dominated by this nine-tiered brick and wooden pagoda. Though first built during the Northern Zhou dynasty (AD 557–588), the present 27.4m structure is a thorough reconstruction from 1926. Admission buys you a ticket to the top, which offers views over the city.

Though official closing hours are listed as 6pm, some travellers have reported the pagoda as being open during the evening.
