  • We came when the Hall Deding Ge was closed for restoration. The Fabaoji building is really nice and the frescoes so big that you can see very little despite the Organization of the site. The temple Liuli is appreciable only from the outside because inside the frescoes, already badly preserved, are absolutely clueless. In any case it's nice to see a place that's still lived and you don't have to ask whether it is original or rebuilt on purpose because you have the feeling of being in a truly ' traditional '. Would recommend staying relaxed, sipping the wonderful drink made with prune juice and ginger from coffee Let Me on the highway.
