Baima Si, White Horse Temple. This place is amazing! so much culture placed in one area. From the markets outside to the monks inside. This being a present functioning temple adds to the amazement of this place. I would not reccomend buying the headset as its hard to concentrate whilst looking at so many amazing things. also, most of the... More

White Horse Temple is an absolute must when visiting Luoyang - actually the old temple is really beautiful and worthwhile to fly in from other places. The three new temples donated by Thailand, Myanmar and India are definitely welcome as additional feature to broaden the understanding on Buddhism in several places outside of China.

A historical temple built in ancient more than a thousand year's ago is definitely worth a visit. The site is crowded with inland visitors during weekend and public holidays.

Ther are two sessions in the temple, the old one "white horse temple" and something new just beside, my review and rating are related to the old temple. If you are already at LuoYang, so the temple is a must do. If you are planning to come, I would not consider as a reason to do so, as you can... More

This site can be divided into two parts. First, the interesting part is the (real) old temple complex, the true White Horse Temple. Next to it are a few new temples built by friends of China. These Thai, Indian and Myanmar temples are brand new but show a different kind of architecture. Seeing them next to each other makes it... More

I really enjoyed my visit here, not far out of Luoyang. Tranquil, serene temple that is as I understand it the home of Buddhism is SE Asia. Indian (all materials, Buddhas and more were donated by Indian Government) and Thai temples serve as interesting points of architectural comparison to the Chinese style of temple. Definitely worth visiting when in Luoyang.

Priced at CNY50, this entry ticket is not too high though. Visited this temple during winter and when there is not much crowd. This is one of the recommended tourist attraction on the internet for Luoyang city, so I decided to visit this temple. Took a public bus no. 58 to this place, and took me close to two hours... More
