There are more than 100 kinds of Buddhist scriptures and mantras on the inner wall of the bell, with a total of more than 230,000 characters. The casting process of the bell body is exquisite, and the sound of the bell is simple and pure, loud and deep, and can be passed on for hundreds of miles. With a history of more than 600 years, it is the largest clock in the world. Has five qualities:

One must: the longest casting age;

Two musts: the most types of scriptures are cast;

Three musts: the bell spreads the farthest;
