Drum and Bell Towers, Beijing

The drum tower was originally built in 1272 and reconstructed at a new location in 1800.

The drum tower was originally built in 1272 and reconstructed at a new location in 1800. The bell tower is build around 1700. Being situated straight north from the Forbidden City, Tiananmen and Qianmen Street, they are on the central north-south axis of Beijing. Originally, the towers were used to play music and later on to tell the Beijingers the time. Now they houses a 63-ton ancient copper bell and a number of ancient/replica drums. Free guides start tours at specific times, and the Drum Tower also has performances every hour or so (usually around half-past). There are great views from the top of the towers, but be prepared to hike up the 60+ (very steep!) steps.
