This park has beautifull buildings from the song dynasty (960-1279), the rooftops are amazing beautifull colours. Nice gardens we spend about 2 hours in this park before we drove on to Pingyao another beautifull place you should visit when you are in the neighbourhood.

First, there are two parts of this sight. The outside is free to enter but it's a newly built park. It's beautiful with gardens. The historical sight is at the end of the park and requires ticket. The main temple was built in Song dynasty. There is also a famous spring. There are quite a few guides would approach you... More

This park was really like a village preserved in time. It felt like i was in the Chinese Kung Fu movies of my youth. The streets and architecture of the buildings was really cool. It could take a couple of hours to go through everything. Admittedly, it can be a bit touristy in places, but overall it's a worthwhile experience.... More

The park is a mix of lakes, gardens, Temples and people enjoying themselves. Some really excellent photo opportunities. Our visit coincided with summer holidays so the park was quite crowded. Spring or Autumn would be the ideal time to visit.

Really a nice park, though certain Y different in terms of what we would a park in US. No playground to speak of, though there was an amusement park within.

This garden is free, so can easily be combined with a visit to Jinci temple next door. Depending on the season, it could be very nice. While there was a very old garden here, most of what is here now was built in 2007. It is well-maintained and clean and has a variety of flowering plants and trees.

A 3-4 hour outing at the least. The temple complex is surrounded by a beautiful park that you must take the time to appreciate. Entrance into the park is free. The Temple complex is huge and well restored. The are many alcoves leading off to different places of worship. I found the many ancient trees fascinating. We spotted a 3000... More
