Ghost City of Fengdu, Chongqing

(2.7/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
Witness the Chinese vision of afterlife at Ghost City of Fengdu, nearly two thousand years old and merging influences and teachings of Confucianism, Taoism, and Buddhism. Legend has it that two imperial court officials, Yin and Wang--the combination of their names coining the phrase "the king of hell"--came to the mountains to practice Taoism and became immortal. Observe the demonic images depicting life in hell, and walk over a bridge that connects the underworld with this world and separates virtuous from sinners--the latter ones are supposed to fall into the pools below the bridge. Other ghostly attractions include a torturing pass fronted by statues of fierce demons and a palace with a large stone in front of its gate--a good person will manage to stand on it with one foot in the air for three minutes, while a bad person won't.

  • 实地考察了一下酆都,感觉就是:把一个好IP做砸了,还不如10年前的中卫高庙。完全不会用现代声光电技术营造气氛(场景打光太重要了啊)。不过那个同时指出“卫生间”和“奈何桥”的路标很有反差萌。 
  • We thought heaven didn't look too inviting with all its goulish images and it made us somewhat worried to see the Temple of Hell. It was here we learned the three trials for ghosts who wanted to enter...  more »
  • 非常有名的地方,既有历史文化成分,又有自然风光,很值得一去。去的话,记得多走走,多看看,留个半天时间最好,强烈推荐去。
