The park where the temple is located is a great place to have a relaxing walk. It is very big and has greenhouses with different plants in them. The temple itself was a bit disappointing, but the rest made it worth the trip. It is quite a distance and time to go there with the local bus. Time : I... More

Great walk to the temple, you need to be fit although there is a car park further up the walk. Bus ride to the temple from city centre takes about 30 mins and easy to work out. Interesting walk and lots to see with great views all around.

Again an absolute must see while staying in Kunming. Right outside the city, going north you find the Mingfeng Hill where this 17th century marvellous temple sits. Inside it's a wonderful mix of old constructions, Taoist temples and an absolute fabulous gigantic garden with any sort of threes (most Camellias) and flowers. Very very well maintained, clean.

Nice to sniff some Chinese culture in this park. Many grandpa's and grandma's come here to play Mahjong, Cards or do some exercise.

Taking the bus no.10 at the last stop. Lots of people are having the good picnic, fishing, and camping. Also if you keep walking up the hill, you will be able to see the temple at there, don't miss to pay a visit there.

This is a relatively small but authentic Old Temple surrounded by peaceful park like grounds. Do not miss going up the bell Tower,you can strike the bell but it will cost you.
