We went to the Leshan Giant Buddha on a private tour and visited a temple our guide told us was Wuyou. Now that we are home, we aren’t sure what we visited--we know we did not cross a scenic bridge, yet toured a series of Buddhist temples with beautiful statues. In any case, after viewing the Buddha from the observation... More

If you have ample time; take a beautiful walk here after you visit the Giant Buddha. On your way up the staircase from the base of the Buddha there will be a sign off to the right. To get to Wuyou you'll need to walk for about 45 mins up and down lots and lots and lots of stairs. But... More

The Temple was the best thing in Leshan. Certainly worth going for. I do find it a pity the Statues had to be protected from people touching them by plastic sheeting, that made it impossible to photograph them.

This Tang dynasty gem is a welcome change from the norm and is worthy of a visit is you are at the Grand Buddha. The temple is colourful and compact and displays influences from both Tibet and Nepal as well as... More

We visited the temple after Leshan Giant Buddha. We crossed the river by walking over a picturesque ancient bridge, climbed some steep steps up a forested hill to the temple. A big courtyard planted with lovely flowers is in the center. There is a big statue of Amithabha Buddha as well as Kuan Yin among others of the Buddhist pantheon... More
