This magnificent ancient building is Weiyuan Bell and Drum Tower. It was built in the 4th year of Tianqi reign in the Ming Dynasty (1624 AD), renovated in the 18th year of Guangxu reign in the Qing Dynasty (1892 AD), and completed in the 26th year of Guangxu reign (1900 AD). After several times of renovation, it has gradually become the one today. The base of the Bell and Drum Tower is in the shape of a square. It is a three-story double-eave gable-and-hip-roof building with the height of 15.21m. The body of the tower is borne by 4 columns with the height of 12.12m and 24 sub-columns, and it narrows progressively story by story. The top of the tower is decorated with glazed tiles, with copper bells hanging on the eave corners. The Bell and Drum Tower is grand and presents unique design. Featuring overhanging eaves and brackets, carved beams and painted rafters as well as superb craftsmanship, it not only has high artistic value and appreciation value but also has certain reference value for understanding and studying the architectural art of the Ming and Qing dynasties. In 1986, the Bell and Drum Tower was listed as a provincial-level culture relic protection site of Qinghai.
