Introduction:
Drum Tower, which is 18.33 meters long from east to west, 14 meters wide from north to south, and 20meters high, is located in the cross road of south Danan Street. It was built in Ming dynasty. And during the Qing dynasty, it was repaired for many times.
This building has three storeys. The first storey is built of bluestones, and the second and the third storey are built of wood and bricks. Around the main body of the tower, there is a wooden corridor o­n each storey for people to overlook the scenery near the tower. At the top of the tower, there is a huge drum. In ancient time, this drum was used for telling time for people at nights. And of cause the name of this tower is got from the huge drum in it.
