China Silk Road Travel Part 3: Hancheng Lake

Our next visit in Xian was to Hancheng Lake Scenic Park, a park that features the culture of the Han Dynasty.  
The sculptures based on the Han Imperial palaces and the Han-style buildings are meant to demonstrate the greatness and prosperity of the Han Civilization.
This pagoda-like tower is a place you can get a good view of the lake and the entire park.
