This is a historic temple which is definitely worth a visit if you are visiting Luoyang. Worth a quick read about the history before you go. Behind the historic temple is where it gets a bit weird. There are all types of extravagant Buddhist temples from around the world. Some of them are amazing to look at, from an architectural... More

Travelled to LuoYang mostly to visit the Longmen grottoes - with the White Horse Temple tacked on as a side trip. Very beautiful & serene setting with some interesting exhibits in some of the pagodas. For some reason we were excluded from some of the newer temples noted in other reviews, with the gate rudely shut in our faces? Tip:... More

This complex is some way out of town but well worth a visit if you have several days in Luoyang. It is quite a large site and when we visited was not overcrowded

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.

White Horse Temple is located in Luoyang, China, and is a sprawling complex with Buddhist temples representing many different countries. It is a gorgeous park and well worth a stop when in Luoyang.

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.
