Great place to visit on a trip to Xi'an, our local guide Rocky from China Highlights was very knowledgeable about the area and we would liked to have spent more time in Xi'an to visit the rest of the local attractions.

We spent about an hour here, not much to do once you have looked at the pagoda, and a few gardens surrounding it, you cannot enter it so it is only an external experience.
