The Great Bell Temple (Big Bell Temple) is located on the western outskirt of Beijing. It houses the largest bell in China, the big bell in the temple is 6.75 metres high, 3.3 metres in diameter and 46.5 tons in weight. Not only big, the bell-ringing is very loud and clear, which could reach up to 120 decibels and can be heard 50 kilometres away in the quiet night. So the bell is known as "King of Bells" in China.
Bell is considered as an auspicious article in the Chinese tradition, like the new year bell-ringing at 00:00 of the Chinese Spring Festival. On the grand ceremonies in ancient China, people usually ring the bells 108 times to begin the celebration. So many big bells were casted in ancient dynasties, hundreds of valuable bells displaying in the Great Bell Temple, together with many other cultural artifacts, the Great Bell Temple is now the Ancient Bell Museum.
