Rickshaws at the Drum Tower
I've visited Gǔlóu many times and never taken a photo. I just couldn't figure one out.
And then, this most recent trip, I walked around the tower several times until I finally got an idea.
This is the giant drum tower built about a thousand years ago by Kublai Khan. An enormous drum rests in front, and it was beat rhythmically to announce meetings. The temple sits in the Inner City to the north of Di'anmen Street.
