    Good to visit in the evening

    A smaller pagoda square than the Big Wild Goose, not much to do/see here but a nice place to spend some time in the evening when the fountains are working.

The Big Wild Goose Pagoda’s North Square is comprised of a musical waterscape fountain, East Garden, West Garden, and cultural and tourism facilities. Tourists are most attracted to the plaza by the immense musical fountain. Throughout the course of the performance, the fountain’s jets change their shape in an elegant water dance. Once night falls, the lights of the show are especially enchanting. On either side of the plaza, visitors can see all sorts of sculptures reflecting the spirit of Buddhism and Shaanxi’s local customs and folk opera.
