  • Located at the exit of Pingyao, this temple keeps magnificent statues (of less than the cultural revolution has spared) and take the time to observe the sumptuous and fine expressions of the statues. Few visitors. A very nice discovery.

  • There are many thousand years old temples in China, but most of them have been rebuilt after the recent demolition, but the name stream has been around for thousands of years, and the buildings and sculptures are not antiquities. The buildings built for a great renovation of Ming and Qing dynasties the red clay sculpture of two thousand, most of the yuan Ming period left, although the environment is more broken, but it is because there is no "maintenance", these are the true age of the month traces.

  • 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.
  • Since the Yuan dynasty Buddha statues are great. But Mao Zedong's era is "Museum" means that if the Buddha is trapped in a cage of pain. Bad state of preservation. Who are interested in art, however, is not to be missed. I went by bicycle from the flat Haruka Castle. It is about 30 minutes one way. Easy-to-understand way, so rather than using taxis may be easy.
