In March, the park is a bit cool and breezy, so you should bring a sweatshirt or light jacket. It takes about 40 minutes to walk through the whole park, even while stopping by at each site. The two unique things in the park that stood out to me was the temple, and obviously the Iron Tower. As I approached... More

I was here in the middle of March. The city is polluted and dusty. At night it looks a bit nicer with the lights on and the night markets are quite ok. The ponds in the park where for the most part drained for mantenance. The iron tower was closed for maintenance. It was dusty and dry. The only unexpected... More

I've seen plenty of Pagodas in China, but Kaifeng's Iron Pagoda lives up to its boast that it is "thebest Pagoda under heaven". We were on a tight timeframe so we approached it via the West Gate. This took us through an avenue of trees, a weird collection of dinosaurs and a large temple structure decorated with wonderful lanterns. The... More

The Iron Pagoda of Kaifeng is an extraordinary 55-metre high tower which has survived innumerable floods and earthquakes over the past millennium. It now has pride of place at the centre of a sprawling park at the northern end of Kaifeng's Old Town. This ancient skyscraper is one of the architectural marvels of Henan. We were also impressed by the... More

The Tower itself is quite spectacular and the grounds are okay. There is some good shopping at reasonable prices. Its an average site but still worth visiting. It is the only iron Pagoda in China.

If you are searching for real evidence of the Song Dynasty in Kaifeng, you should put the Iron pagoda on your list. While most of the city is a reconstruction designed to draw tourists, the Iron Pagoa is the read deal, constructed in the 11th century of beautifully glazed bricks. If you go on a nice day, the surrounding park... More

This is one of the original oldest standing sites of the city, which is not modified or rebuilt. It's about 1,000 years old. I've climbed to the top. It's a feat but worth it.

It's one of the more impressive pagodas I've see.The park is nice, but it was raining and freezing outside when I went so my impression isn't that great.

It is a good combination of ancient monuments and artificial attractions. Like many other touristic spots in China, it is somewhat crowded. You can also take a boat in a lake.

Tie Ta is a pagoda in Iron Tower Park. An extra entrance ticket is required. To climb the tower is somewhat tiresome, but the view from the top is beautiful.
