You need to walk up a number flight of steps to reach the main temple hall. Alternatively you can take a light rail coaster ride which cost 15RMB to the... More

The Golden Temple is not covered with gold leaves but made of bronze. The temple is the heaviest in China since the bronze weighed over 200 tons. I suggest to climb up to the top floor to see the view. I found the place neglected.

if you want to escape the city, spend a day here. There are paths to stroll, temples to explore and gardens to photograph. May local Chines use the park to practice their skills in music, exercise, cards and ma jong. A Beautiful Place and Experience.

Interesting historical sight where Wu Sangui fled after inviting in the Manchus to defeat Li Zicheng, who overthrew the Ming in 1644. Central to the story is the fate of his beloved concubine Chen Yuanyuan. The central temple is made entirely of bronze due to the proximity of famous copper mines. Most of the interest is in smaller museums and... More

The Golden Temple is unlike any other temples (taoist) and it is not gold it is bronze. Set in a scenic area which you can explore for hours as there are lots of buildings and gardens of historical and aesthetic interest, not to mention fun things for the kids to do.

The temple itself is made of bronze which is very rare. Besides, the park is full of trees. And the park is close to downtown with a lot of buses accessed.

I went to Kunming’s Golden Palace Park (Jin Dian金殿- Tai He Gong太和宫) in December; therefore probably most of the parks didn´t have flowers. In general this park is pretty nice place, but absolutely nothing outstanding. I definitely have seen much more impressive parks in China. General comment: if you have nothing different to do and you have a lot of... More
