    Great place to look at a lot of statues. Great temple with almost no tourist. Really quiet and peacefull.  more »

    Very beautiful statues, huge, very expressive and covered with dust we can admire through not very welcoming grids. There is not a lot of visitors that allows you to enjoy your visit. We enjoyed the authenticity of this site.

    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.
