The Giant Wild Goose Pagoda in Xi'an is located in Daci'en Temple in the south of the city. The tower is one of Xi'an's landmarks. Daci'en Temple was once a magnificent royal temple in Chang’an City during the Tang Dynasty. When Emperor Taizong was born, Prince Li Zhi built the temple in memory of his mother Empress Wen De. Monk Xuanzang, a famous figure in Chinese history, served as the first abbot of the Buddhist monastery. Monk Xuanzang translated Buddhist scriptures at the Daci'en Temple for 11 years and oversaw the construction of the Giant Wild Goose Pagoda.

I arrived at the square at 7pm just in time to see the fountains performance. There was a large crowd of people so I was unable to see what it looked like. I then decided to stay until the next performance at 9pm. Got some refreshments and found the best position to witness and capture both the fountain performance and the Giant Wild Goose Pagoda. If there is not much you want to do then I suggest you come to the fountain and time it perfectly as at 7pm it is still light so you don’t get the full effect of the fountain and the lights. Be warned, that if you are standing by the fence looking at the Pagoda you will get wet from the spray of the fountain.
Big Wild Goose Pagoda is one of Xi'an's landmarks. Many friends who come to Xi'an to travel must also come to the Big Wild Goose Pagoda. With a daily average of 80,000 passengers, it is a lot of people's expectations to take a photo of it. In addition to shooting the Big Wild Goose Pagoda at the traditional position, you can also board the top floor of Joy City, and use the glass surface to reflect the shooting. If you encounter the sunset, it will be better. Shooting on the roof of Joy City, you can use the telephoto end of the phone to highlight the main big geese tower.
The stone statue of Xuanzang at the entrance of the Big Wild Goose Pagoda, the tourists taking pictures under the steps every day are also endless. If you don't like to shoot tourists, you can go close to some photos of the distance between Xuanzang and Big Wild Goose Pagoda. Shooting with the telephoto of the mobile phone, because it is digital zoom, the picture quality is slightly worse, but it is also possible as a tourist commemorative photo.
After entering the scenic spot, the Big Wild Goose Pagoda is the tallest building in the interior. It is also one of the photos of the must-have card. The frame composition is also a method often used for photographing. The original hottest incense burner made a photo of the foreground because the upper part was sealed and can't be photographed now. You can also find some foregrounds in the scenic area to take pictures to make the picture more layered. Using the leaves as the foreground, you can also shoot the style. Not the same photo.
After the position is high, you can't shoot the tourists below, if you use the pavilion as the foreground to shoot. Of course, the Big Wild Goose Pagoda itself has a certain inclination, so you can find that the Big Wild Goose Pagoda has some inclinations according to the contrast of the horizon. Using the door as a prospect, it is also good to bring a person occasionally.
Big Wild Goose Pagoda is one of the landmarks of the ancient city of Xi'an, and has the largest North Square music fountain in Asia. If you come to Xi'an, it is still necessary to come here, but the Big Wild Goose Pagoda is too expensive for people to vomit. If you don't want to come in, you can take a big wild goose pagoda at the door and Joy City as a card photo.

The original architecture of the Big Wild Goose Pagoda is to imitate India's most famous and unique ritual tower, "Bodh Gaya" (translated into "Daju Tower" in Chinese), with 5 floors and 60 meters high. Later, Tang Gaozong Li Zhi felt that this Indian-style building was somewhat uncoordinated with the overall architectural style of Chang'an City, so it was rebuilt and added to the 9th floor, and later to the 7th floor.
