This is actually a memorial dedicated to the 5 famous outcasts residing in Hainan. Nothing much to see and some of the exhibits were badly maintain. Very limited English narrations. Bring someone who reads Chinese and perhaps you'd get some useful info. Maintenance and cleanliness is poor and wonder what they do with the entrance fee collected.

Visited the temple and although the price is cheap, the condition inside is, well pathetic. Dirt and leaves everywhere, and not a single bench was clean enough to sit on. The attendants were all sleeping, except one girl who was playing on her cellphone and didn't even bother a glance at us. This is 11am in the morning. Just affirms... More

Signages are all in Chinese. Non-Chinese educated visitors won't have clue as to whats happening. Why were the 5 officials banished? Why did a subsequent emperor build the halls in their memories? The stone statues of the 5 lords have only Chinese text. Non-Chinese educated visitors will be at a loss trying to figure out what is being said. The... More

The school complex, is a complex that was build several hundreds years ago to teach the local Hainan people how to read and write Chinese. As per June 2011, the entrance fee is 20 Yuan.

Maybe I've been soiled living and travelling in China. However this place did not feel very old. Most of the things there were copies and it has been heavily restored. Not worth your time unless you have a lot of time. On the plus side it was 30 RMB per person to get in so if you want to visit... More
