  • Baiyun Temple-temple of white clouds in Chinese. Very old, but renovated many times since its construction. One of the most famous Taoist temples in China. Is not very far away from the Western train station, 20-25 minutes vigorous step. Entry costs just 10 or 15 RMB. He is not very well known among tourists, therefore, idle visitors there a little. The temple has a classic layout, i.e. the central axis from the entrance gate are located one after another several pavilions (halls) on leading Taoist deities. Before the pavilions cost censer with sacrificial candles, which is very fragrant smoke. There is a small pond, which will throw the marble bridge called "Wind Shelter", and under the bridge hanging huge metal Chinese coin with a square hole in the Center. If you get fine coin in the hole, it brings luck-such a sign. So at the bottom of the reservoir lies a lot of coins. On the territory there are a lot of Greens. White cloud Temple is famous among followers of the Taoist faith. Among them are not only Chinese, but also Europeans, Americans. The Church works Edition of the international journal "Questions of Taoism". In General, kinda place.
