Wannian temple is at the middle section of ermeishan which is at about 2000 meter altitude. Over here it is not as cooling as jingding and it is more crowded as many tourists who do not want to climb to jingding will be here. You can take the bus to the cable station from the bottom of ermeishan and then... More

We spent fifty minutes walking from the bus station to Wannian Temple. The atmosphere along the way is serene and quite. The architecture of the Temple is amazing and old. There is a statue of golden Buddha on a white marble elephant there. Many people pray in the temple.

This is a common problem when visiting famous attractions. The place, the environment, the buildings are all very worth visiting. Not much to talk about it here, you should experience it yourself. The down side will be the contrast between ancient cultures and modern tourist. Wannianshi = Baishuishi

Interesting old temple. We enjoy the visit despite the too many tourists. It is an old well preserved templ, the budha and elephants are nice. We get there by cable car, and walk all the way down to parking lot, passing the pavilion and the lake. Strongly recommended.

Midway to the peak of Mount Emei is the Wannian Temple and Monastery. It can be reached after a bus ride, a cable car ride, and a walk up a concrete stairway. Some of the structures inside the temple present a different architecture. But the grounds in the temple are well kept and maintained. Inside the main temple, there is... More

The walk to the temple is fairly easy, about an hour and not too much uphill climbing. Nice views along the way. The structure of the temple is different from that of most I have seen.

Harmonious budhist chants welcome you to this temple half way up mt emei. With my Indian background, i could connect dots - the chanting sounded prakrit - ancient forefather of languages in the subcontinent, lots of elephant statues including discoveeing one of Ganesha. The main temple is a stupa like the ones in central india. Overall beautiful harmonious place

We actually slept in the temple, the inn is great. Nobody speaks English and if you want to stay there be sure to organize in advance with local support. The rooms are great with glass wall to the mountain.
