Located on the central axis of the Jianfu Temple in south Xian, Small Wild Goose Pagoda survives from the Tang Dynasty (618-907). It was called “Jianfu Temple Pagoda” during the Tang and Song Dynasties. Its present name is closely related to the “Big Wild Goose Pagoda”.

Then enjoy the famous Shadow Puppet Performance that originated more than 2000 years ago. Learn how it works as ‘One mouth tells stories of thousands of years, a pair of hands operates millions of soldiers.’ Ask your guide about its history and marvel at the lingering music, exquisite sculpture, brisk color, and lively performance.
