Pagoda Hill Introduction

Yan'an is of great historical importance in relation to the Chinese revolutionary movement and for that reason Yan'an Pagoda Hill is a must to be explored if you want to really enjoy yourself in this remarkable city. The hill stands to the southeast of the city, and its name is derived from the nine-story pagoda o­n its summit that was erected during the Tang Dynasty (618-907).

Following the founding of the People's Republic of China (PRC), Yan'an Pagoda Hill was designated by the State Council as o­ne of the first group of key cultural relics to be granted state protection. The design of the Medal of Honor for Independence and Freedom issued by PRC in 1955 centers upon a relief of Yan'an Pagoda Hill together with five five-pointed red stars symbolizing the close unity of the Chinese people under the leadership of the China's Communist Party.

Pagoda Hill Features

On the hill, there is a huge new bell named 'Ping'an Bell'(Safety Bell) and a new huge drum named 'Taiping Drum' (Peace Drum). Tolling the bell or beating the drum is said to bring you good health and happiness. After your sounding the bell, do not forget to enjoy the stone inscriptions created with considerable artistic skills down the hill. The carved stone works exhibit Chinese calligraphy by many famous ancient scholars. From the hill with its luxuriant trees and grasses o­ne may have a bird's eye view of the Yan'an City and this is sure to be o­ne of the highlights of your visit.
