At the foot of Ermei mountain, lies baoguo temple. You can go to this temple after you leshan big buddha excursion as it is just a short drive away before you head to the hotel and rest for the day. This temple has monks that are real monks who chant and live simple life unlike the monks at shaolin temple... More

Background: Among the few dozen or so Buddhist temples and monasteries dotting Mt. Emei, the Baoguo temple sits at the base of the mountain. PROS: Location... location... location is one of its best assets. Because it sits at the foot of Mt. Emei, the temple is one of the closest from the town centre and therefore one of the most...

That was the first temple visited in Emei mountain, that was a nice temple accessible from the bottom, the fee was of 8 yuans we did some fantastic pictures, if you keep going on your left you can visit the monastery as well for an entrance fee of 6 yuans.

If you are going to Mount Emei, this is a nice temple to start with. It is a the foot of Mt. Emei and is just another temple among the many at this site. The temple is very similar to a lot of the Buddhist temples in China. There are large rocks, waterfalls, bamboos, ferns, in addition to the various... More

This was a very peaceful place. You could stay here too if you wanted, as it has hotel type facilities. It has a beautiful garden and stone figures scattered around the place. The architecture is something to see. I enjoyed comeing here and looking at the temple and its surrounds.

We arrived amidst pouring rain so hiking up the mountain was not an option. The temple is commercial with three sticks of incense and two candle set selling about 100RMB as you enter. You are suppose to use the set for one person but my little kids couldn't hold it for long and split it up, one each. If you... More

I have some trouble with the buddhist philosophy and the commercialization of the temples. It was very busy and very commercial. A lot more authentic temples are found on the mountain.

We stayed at the guest house here for 2 days. It was an excellent experience. Bathrooms are shared and only squat toilets, so keep that in mind, but you get to say you showered with real monks after staying here. It is incredibly peaceful and an incredibly beautiful temple. I highly recommend staying here.

Nothing wrong with Baguosi, but I'm all templed out by now. It's easily accessible from Baoguo Cun (Baoguo Village.) An easy walk from town and you can see one more temple.
