Ghost City of Fengdu, Chongqing

(170+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Religious Site
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. See Ghost City of Fengdu and all Chongqing has to offer by arranging your trip with our Chongqing trip builder.

  • Beware, lots of steps, over 400 so you need to be mobile. Very interesting place and explained in great details by our informative guide.  more »
  • There is a need to walk up the slope and steps to get to the temple. The history behind the statues are colourful, and it would be advantageous if you can get a guide to explain.  more »
