We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Xian Small Wild Goose Pagoda Scenic Area

Xian Small Wild Goose Pagoda Scenic Area

Located in the southern area of Xi’an, with a distance of 2 kilometers form the City Wall, Small Wild Goose Pagoda is another populate tourist attraction of Xi,an. It stands in Jianfu Temple. It got its name as its smaller size than the Big Wild Goose Pagoda. If the Big Wild Goose Pagoda is compared to a stalwart young man, then the Small Wild Goose is like a delicate, slim girl. The sequestered-surroundings and the daintily scenery made it a popular leisure site for appreciation of cultural relics, sightseeing and entertainment. There is a huge iron bell traced back to the Jin Dynasty inside Jianfu Temple. There is an interesting story about the bell. It is said that if someone missed his lover far away from him, the just needs to write down their names and addresses on a piece of paper, then the sound of the bell will send the message to them. The sound of the bell is crisp and pleasant and can be heard as far as five kilometers away.

Xian Small Wild Goose Pagoda Scenic AreaFor a long period of years, there even was an experience of “magic healing” of the Small Wild Goose Pagoda. In 1487 A.D., there was an earthquake of 6 points in Shaanxi Province. One-foot crack was slited from the top to the bottom of the Pagoda. However, after 34 years, the crack folded overnight in another earthquake. This amazed the local people, so they called it as “magic healing”.

In September 1555, an official named Wanghe stayed in temple on his way home. After he heart the miracle from a monk, he carved the story in the lintel of the Northern gate. However, when renovated the pagoda after 1949, it was found that the healing was not “magic” but “human”. The early builders in accordance with the geo-graphic nature of Xi’an made the founda-tion into the shape of a hemisphere. Therefore, the foundation evenly devided with the stress of the earthquake. Thus, after enduring 70 quakes, the pagoda still stands as firmly as when it was first established. That is the result of the marvelous workmanship of the ancient builder.

Climb up the top of the pagoda, you can get a bird’s eye view of the whole Xi’an City.
