Together with the Bell Tower, they were used for telling time from 1272. It is 46.7 meters (153 feet) high, and is also a two-storey building; the first floor contains the China Committee for the Promotion of the Minority Art. The second floor contains the exhibition area. Every New Year Eve, the drum is beaten with the bell 108 times to send a blessing to the people. You can climb onto the drum tower to have a birds-eye view to admire the entire city. Opening Hour: 09:10-17:00. Fee: CNY 20
