  • Love this place - captured a picture of a woman holding an umbrella (it was raining) washing her clothes at the side 
  • It is not of the best attractions you can visit in Fenghuang, but with the high cost of entry would not visit it, and at the end and at the end they will always find something interesting in the buildings of Fenghuang. Avoid large crowds do not visit her in August.

  • 准提庵位于凤凰古城回龙阁里面的一条小街上,是个不大的尼姑庵。始建于明代,原名江心禅寺,后来信众增多,专门分出来居住比丘尼,更名准提庵
