The Drum Tower photo copyrighted by: BeijingChinaWorld
Located 100 meters (109 yards) south to the bell tower, the drum tower was
placed on a 4-meter-high (13 feet) stone and brick base. It is 46.7 meters
(153 feet) high, a little bit lower than the bell tower that is 47.9 meters high (157 feet). This tower is also a two-storey building; the first floor contains the China Committee for the Promotion of the Minority Art. The second floor contains the exhibition area. Originally, there was one big drum and 24 smaller drums, but only the big drum remains.
