Yet one more sparkly new fake mickey mouse temple. These are some of the worst yet. Complete tourist traps, with minimal monk presence, just lots of bored children performing for the crowds. Chinese holiday Buddhists burning 4ft incense sticks, not even a pretense at prayers, just burn them.

To make on Sonia's review, the temple is great, in the moment you cross the entrance gate you will feel the temple is exactly what has been built hundred years ago. Crossing the many altars and rooms the sensation you are moving through time will keep pushing you ahead. The closing is the 5m silver Buddha... It is a must... More

Having been to many, many, many Buddhist temples in China, Dazhao Temple in Hohhot was one of my favorites by far. Although it may not have an impressive view of mountains or historical significance as far as I know, I was mainly impressed by the Buddhist altars. This temple had some of the most exquisite and interesting altars of any... More

Beautiful, quiet and well-kept. It still is a working Lamasery. You can easily spend an hour walking the grounds.

It's the beautiful murals of the Dazhao Temple that merit your attention, along with the silver Buddha and the Guanyin Hall. A lovely 30-minute stop.

Incredible and very beautiful. The only downer was some very agressive beggers out front, who followed me non-stop. I was not about to give them money, but did want to whack him after about 5 minutes of him following me. UGH.

We visited this temple as part of a tour in China. My wife said that this is a very famous temple but after looking at the temple, it looks like any other temple. In the courtyard of the temple, there are stands set up with tourist items for sale. After seeing the temple complex, it was not impressive or memorable.

I like they combined all the Tibetan Buddhas. I don't like they charge 65 CNY just for entry. I don't think the Faith must pay

There were tons of tourists here in august, but I liked it. The mongolian temples look a lot like tibetan temples, but here they don't mind if you take pictures inside. Loved it.

It was a beautiful temple in the middle of a great shopping district (for touristy stuff). We enjoyed walking around and exploring. People are very friendly and always smile/say hi!
