Lijiang Mural in Baisha Village, Lijiang

(3.1/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
With a total of 53 pieces of frescoes painted from 1385 to 1619, Lijiang Mural in Baisha Village gives you a rare opportunity to see a surviving early Ming-period painting. With most of the frescoes housed in the temple complex of Dabaoji Palace, you can enjoy an artful inclusion of Confucianism, Taoism, and Buddhism on gorgeous murals. The murals are not particularly well-lit or restored, so you may want to hire a guide for further explanations. Offering a quiet retreat from busy Lijiang, Baisha township offers the chance to enjoy scenic views of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain and take a stroll along traditional streets.
