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.
