Ring the bell!

Ring the bell!
The big Buddhist bell at the Little Wild Goose Pagoda in Xian. The chime was every bit as impressive as the size would suggest. HFF and best wishes for the weekend, everyone.
UPDATE: I've found a youtube link to a similar bell, so you can listen: www.youtube.com/watch?v=p-CsvjXWYH8 SECOND UPDATE Tanja - Loughcrew has turned up a link to a video of this very bell : www.youtube.com/watch?v=2pCLWz4uKkM

I hope you had ear protectors at the ready, this looks as if it could be very loud. What is the part looking like a well entrance for?

Thanks, Amelia. I've now found a youtube link with a similar bell being rung. It's not as much the volume, as the tone and duration of the chime. www.youtube.com/watch?v=p-CsvjXWYH8
Sorry, I must admit I don't know about the "well" below, apart from maybe amplifying the acoustics possibly. Best wishes for the coming week.

Time to get back to work!

I had the opportunity to climb a Wild Goose Pagoda but can't remember it being Big or Small. It was interesting to see the worn stairs and think of 1400 years of people walking up and down the pagoda.

Marvellous, thank you Tanja, that is indeed the same bell. Pity about the wind and rain noise in their (phone?) recording of the sound, but it still gives the general sound (just think a bit louder). :-)
