  • Contains some very detailed, elaborate and unusual statues. The location is easily accessible by bus (line 108) from the train station / north /south gate.  more »
  • Once they arrive at the gates of Pingyao worth the short hike to the Temple of Shualing with an unexpected collection of statues dating back to the Song dynasty that infuse this religious site a bit forgotten an atmosphere of ancient artistic elegance.

  • A very empty and dirty place. Besides me, there were 6 other Chinese people in the entire temple. The statues are covered with dust and sand, as is everything there. The upside is that it's quiet and unrestored, but also not taken care of. Not worth 35cny.
  • Not worth visiting. Way better temples to visit in this country than this one.
  • Very fine clay. Drawback is that in order to protect many places are fenced, and fail to see the details.

Where to stay in Pingyao County

Many visitors to Pingyao County consider staying in one of the hotels and hostels located within the city walls to get the authentic experience. The converted Ming and Qing dynasty buildings located on the main roads--in particular, the pedestrianized street leading east to west through town--house some luxurious options, with onsite spas, restaurants, and pools. Take a peak at the side streets in the old city for some more budget-friendly hotels, as well as the odd hostel with dormitory-style rooms.
