X is for Xintan Drum Tower

This pretty drum tower is in Xintan Village, an ethnic minority Dong village in the mountain province of Guizhou in China.

This is linked with Denise's ABC Wednesday, where the letter of the week is X.

This lovely little tower should meet up with a Norwegian stavkirke.

Ah, but you have it easier than most today with all those Chinese names beginning with X.

Nice to see a drum tower instead of a bell tower.

Ciao Francisca, many wishes for a happy 2011 to you and your family!

Nifty building.
It's interesting how some languages, Anglized Chinese, native Mexican, and Latin, there are PLENTY of X words. But I imagine other letters are trickier!

The detail in that building is amazing!

It's very attractive. Now, if I knew what a drum tower was ... okay, it has something to do with drums. I know that!

Sounds like you've been having a good time!
