Small Wild Goose Pagoda
Small Wild Goose Pagoda, situated in Jianfu Temple, was built during 707–709, period of Emperor Zhongzong in Tang Dynasty (705–710). It is a typical Buddhist pagoda of tight tiles to the west of the Big Wild Goose Pagoda and it was so named for the smaller body and later construction period to the Big Pagoda. The body of the pagoda was originally square shaped multi-eaved brick tower with 15 stories. After some times of earthquakes in the Ming Dynasty, the 14th and 15th stories were destroyed, and the body experienced cracking and “healing”. The existed small Wild Goose Pagoda is 13-storeyed, still retaining the appearance of that in the Tang Dynasty. Hence, Small Wild Goose Pagoda is regarded as one of the eight famous scenic features in Shaanxi.
In the Tang Dynasty, Jianfu Temple was a very famous royal temple, but destroyed in the war at the end of the Tang Dynasty. The existed Jianfu Temple was rebuilt in Ming and Qing dynasties.
There is a huge iron bell dating from the Kin Dynasty (1192) inside the temple. The sound of the bell is crisp and pleasant, and can be heard as far as five kilometers away. People here simply call it the "Magic Bell".
The harmonious co-existence between the small Wild Goose Pagoda, the ancient building groups of Jianfu Temple, and the folk relics, like Chang’an ancient music, horse racks, artistic exhibition make it possible for the tourists enjoy the culture relics and folk art in an extremely beautiful environment, where there are green trees, fragrant flowers and singing birds.
