Dayan Pagoda Northern Square reflects the cultural beauty of the once-great Tang Dynasty. The square contains a garden area, a tourism business area, and a cultural corridor. Great building

Lots of shops in the area. A neat place to walk around and people watch. Pretty busy day and night. Great fountains of dancing water. If in the area it’s worth a stop to spend an hour or two.

Busy square with shops, restaurants, and a beautiful fountain. Fountain light show is delightful to watch, however the area becomes very, very crowded.

Wandering around the square there as so much happening. Square dancing, (in the square not CW) and hundreds of people taking part in different styles and exercises. Great place for morning people watching.

Our guide was so excited to share this with us and we really enjoyed our walk down the avenue. We were lucky it was a quiet night crowd wise so was not overbearing. Definately worth a visit if the weather is right
