  • Beautiful vista from out, wonderful panorama can be admired once climbed to the top (part of the wall and the other temples outside), pity that the interiors have been completely emptied! Coming from other Asian countries and expecting much more. Note all decorated ceilings, always in style "forbidden city", I don't know how they were originally, but I can confirm that today it is "wallpaper" obvious (because in some parts it is attached correctly). Shame about the carelessness. However is the most representative of the city Temple, then a must if you are in Chengde.

  • You are transported to Tibet with a visit to this temple. A lot of walk , so avoid entering in case you have problems walking. However, that doesn't stop you from a photo shoot from outside.  more »
  • If you go through Chengde, this temple is to see. In Tibetan style, this temple is a must. Count 11 Yuan from the Center for a taxi. Only downside, the entrance is expensive (as for all sites to Chengde), but the beauty of the site you will forget.
