These 2 towers date to the Ming Dynasty. They were sounded at dawn and dusk. You can visit one or the other or both. In addition, performances are held in each at specified times. Please check in advance if you would like to see these. Both structures are easily reached by either foot or public transportation and are located withn the city walls.
