  • Since we have visited several temples during our stay in Inner Mongolia, we were here not very impressed. We have introduced greater than the five pagodas. It was only a small building with a very small sanctuary at the end of the temple. If you're nearby, you can make a small detour in the temple complex.

  • Five Pagoda Temple in wu ta si Temple is a Buddhist temple in Hohhot city, hu te hao he. Another victim of the same. This temple was built by Yangcarci in the year 1727 Mongol Lord Additionally measure also represents the wheel of life. Representation of the universe according to cosmology, and a map about the universe, Mongolia--a rarity that represented the Zodiac, and the location of the stellar variety. But what is a light here, however, is that the Five wu ta Pagoda model construction came from Bodhgaya in India country pagoda.

  • 老的建筑只剩下一棵树,一个大门还有后面的五塔寺。但是建筑比较有特点,保存较好。随附老照片对比及寺院介绍,很值得一游的地方。  more »
