Very nice place... picturesque... with a temple on top .... If you believe in their religion, there are places to write your wishes/prayers. Vendors outside with local fruits, be careful as their prices vary.

The grounds were beautiful and it was amazing to look at the pagodas, which are about 1200 to 1300 years old. Beauty: 4, History: 5, Service: 1 (the driver of the shuttle drove at unsafe speeds, going 30 km an hour while the limit was 5-10 km). He looked angry the whole time and when I tried to tell him...

This is a beautiful place to visit, its so pretty, quite a bit walking but you can pay and get a buggy to take you to the top then walk back down. Its worth it. The lake is beautiful and great for taking photographs, very interesting reading along the way explaining temple and pagodas, lovely location with the mountains making... More

Only go if you have a student card and get entry for half price. Even then, a good alternative would be to hike up the mountain to the tea garden which offers great views and less Chinese tourists/tours.

These symbols of Dali are quite lovely, especially against the green mountains. Within the last decade the (city/county/province/national government) has developed a large park around the pagoda site with a number of Buddhist temples. I even found a shrine to the Taoist god for good fortune! Apparently this has been the site of Buddhist teaching for a long time, but... More

One of the better sites in Dali...take the electric bus (35RNB) up to the monastery at the top of the hill, and walk all the way around it. Then walk or bus down the hill, walk past the lovely reflecting lake and then visit the three pagodas themselves. Lovely way to spend the morning

The place were quite big. The Pagoda itself was standing even after the Earthquake years ago. It was hardly to find a toilet in here. The surrounding of the Pagodas were quite, clean and has a clean fresh air. Cannot find local guide, so all we do is take photos and wondering what's the stories behind it.

This a very busy complex of many different temples to various gods and religious symbols. I would recommend paying for the optional electric cart to take you to the top temple and then walk down the many steps to the temples. On the day I was there the monks in the top temple were praying for the earth quake victims... More

New buildings, but nice, especially against the blue sky. The more you go up, the more quiet. Very commercial place however. Reminds me of Jesus kicking out the money exchangers and other shops out of the temple in Jerusalem. He would be very busy in these temples and there are quite a few of them on that mountain.
