We had a wonderful time in Tibet. We have learned a lot about this unique destination because of the wonderful guide Degyi who is so knowledge and always available towards our tours. We stayed at the Shangri-La Hotel Lhasa, and we would never imagine a Tibet travel could be so nice and amazing without the help of Degyi.

Also, thanks a lot to our Tibetan driver Mr.Wongdun for his safe driving and a good sense of service along the way.

We shall return Tibet in the near future!

Xian Drum TowerAbout 300 meters to the northwest of the Bell Tower, stands another magnificent building the Drum Tower, which was built in 1380, four years older than the Bell Tower.

Drum Tower XianThere used to be a huge drum in the tower which told the time at dusk; hence, the name Drum Tower. The bell in the Bell Tower and the drum in the Drum Tower, have been referred to as the Morning Bell and the Dusk Drum. Later, the drum was no longer used to tell time but only to give warnings to people in times of war. The base of the Drum Tower covers an area of 1,924 square meters and is 34 meters high. It was also built with blue bricks.

The building is rectangular with tiers of eaves and has golden-tiled roof. It is only twoDrum Tower Xian storeys inside. There are corridors around the tower on each tier and the outer eaves are decorated with networks of wood arches. The elegance and grandeur of its structure reveals much of the superb workmanship in architecture of the Chinese people.
