These pagodas were beautiful though you can't go inside them. The grounds are lovely though be aware there are lots of steps to go up to get to the top.

It seems that a little clarification is needed with regard to this attraction. Qianxun pagoda, the largest, at 70m, of the three pagodas at this site was built of brick covered with mud, probably in the 9th century. The other two pagodas were probably built about 100 years later. Together they have survived, albeit with frequent repair, many earthquakes, several... More

The Pagodas are at the beginning of the park. But, you can walk all the way up through about 10 temples. The walk till the very last temple is about 1.5-2 hours depending on your pace. All temples are renovated, thus they look a bit too new. But at the same time, if it is your first time in China,... More

A bit pricey, but a nice Park to walk up and a picnic through the three Pagodas and never ending temples. Lovely to look up through to the mountains and over the amazing roofs.

We were taken to visit these and were surprised at the spectacular views from various areas of this park. A little disappointed that you could not access the structures but it is understandable. Loved the mirror images on the lake.

If you like the above mentioned, you are in the right place in Dali! The architecture is so exquisite it is almost surreal. It is also a nice place to get outdoor. I was greeted with spectacular sunset during my visit. I would advise seeing the place entirely on foot, so as not to miss any photographic opportunities.

You will spend more time here that you planned. As soon as you reach this place, you will realize that there are not only the pagodas, but a huge park well kept full of temples that stretch up to the mountain. There are also few lakes and flowers around this area. The pagodas are very cool, pretty old but still... More

They make you pay a big price just to go see some silly 3 towers of nothing where you can't even go inside. Avoid this tourist attraction at all costs. The single pagoda to the south is more worth visiting and best of all, it's free.
