china.org.cn says
Located in Chengtian Temple in the southwestern tip of Yinchuan City, the pagoda is a well preserved Buddhist architecture from West Xia Kingdom. Since it stands in the western part of the city, it is also called the Western Pagoda.

The pagoda was first built in 1050 during the Song Dynasty. The octagonal, brick, eleven-storey pagoda is 64.5 meters high. The first three storeys have niches but no windows. From the fourth storey up, there are four small windows on each storey; the top storey has big, round ones. The interior of the pagoda is square and a staircase leads to the top, so people can admire the view from the round windows. The pagoda's steeple, like that of Haibao Pagoda, is peach-shaped and built of green glazed bricks.

Admission: 10 yuan

Opening Hours: 9:00 鈥 18:00

How to get there: Take Bus No. 2 at South Gate of Yinchuan to get there.
