The Chongsheng Temple especially is worth the visit, as it features (on of) the largest Han-style great hall in China.

A visit to the three pagodas and the accompanying temples/gates is well worth the entry fee. While the pagodas were lovely, walk behind them to the path that travels up the mountain. You will walk through a series of 7 temples, each of which are utterly stunning and totally complemented by the mountain scenery around them. I've been to many,... More

The Pagodas themselves are nice, and you can see them from outside. If you have a good zoom on your camera, and not your useless smart-phone to take pics, you can even take some decent pics without paying the 120 entry price, and then another 35 yuan for an electric golf buggy to take you to Dali old town.

Huge park with expensive entry fee. Beautiful pagodas with the oldest and tallest built more than 1100 years ago during the Nanzhou Kingdom. The three pagodas visible from miles away is the landmark of Dali city. It takes more than an hour to cover the whole complex on foot. There is a temple behind the pagodas where one can spend...

A very nice place to visit. The pagoda's are impressive, but the whole temple complex can not be overlooked. Yes it is rather new, but it is beautifull and surprising. It is best to take the golf-carts up the hill and then walk down, because it is higher then you think

Beautiful pagpdas and architecture. You can see the whole city and the lake from here. However, besides the pagodas, the other chinese's architectures are the same. If you' re not interesting in the chinese's gods story, just take the photo from outside is enough (the entrance fee quite expensive)

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
