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.

  • We have to pay extra Remimbi 290 and frankly, not worth it. Mainly reconstructed and better to stay onboard and enjoy the cruise facility. Quite a fair bit of climbing 
  • Via a cruise in Fengdu. With a tour guide this very distinct visited temple complex. It is the only place in China where the "King of Hell" is worshipped, in a unique Black Temple room. In this temple was also tested whether you are good or bad lived and so whether you go to heaven or hell. ... There are also martelscenes in hell, for bad people who should be punished in hell. The complex is high and is extensive and there are many steps to be climbed. -all in all it was an interesting experience
